Garbage has become a gold mine for some politicos. Some are generous enough to share the pay dirt with colleagues.
The garbage disposal contract of this institution had been awarded to the particular firm for the last four years. The contract has now been awarded to the same firm to carry out the disposal using a new technique, they say.
A powerful madam reportedly took a keen interest in selecting the contractor for the new four-year term. And she had been liberal with the kickback she had collected, and the party members too had received three to four lakhs of rupees each as their ‘share’.
