    There was a Telegu film called:” dorakithe dongulau”.
    In early 1950s, the Then CM Kengal Hanumanthaih commissioned the construction of Vidhana Soudha, awarding contracts to his close friends, who bumped up the initial budget by 3 times,. When the construction was finishing, many discovered the real reason for the increased buget amount running into many crores-a large slice was going into Kengal’s pocket. After protests, Kengal appointed a committee of enquiry, headed by another friend, who cleared him! Kengal got away with it, although a bribe taker-a crook, but was not caught. He was then hailed for his foresight in the construction of Vidhana Soudaha!! That was less than 10 years after independence! Jai Hind!!
