The Bridge of Corruption

29 lakhs is not a small sum of money. Prakash Gupta reports on how this exorbitant sum was wasted on a bridge.

Just a month after its construction, the bridge built by the Irrigation Department in Murka Village, Balrampur District, Chhattisgarh collapsed into a pile of rubble. The official reason given- the water damaged it.

The real reason however is corruption, claims Prakash:

"Corruption is a problem that plagues people at every level in this country. How can a bridge collapse when that much money has gone into making it? Surely the money has gone into people's pockets instead of being spent on raw materials."

Our team of community correspondents report on many such cases of corruption. As always, we ask you to hold the authorities in charge accountable.

Please call: District Collector, CR Prasanna on 09826442277 and ask him to take action against the culprits.
