    nonsense. The Principal making 2-3 crore worth property is actually nothing. Mere 3 crores. People earn by cheating poor these days 100 crores n won’t these police understand that. Their own department there r so many. In fact each and every person in police department is a dirty chap who easily earns 2000 a day easily apart from the salary.

  2. Joseph says:

    Sir, nowadays days, 2 crores to a Principal with 30 yrs service is natural. But what about Political Leaders whose income in 5 yrs is 100 times. And Police dept officials, Registrar’s offices staff, Revenue dept. Officials will have definitely more than 10-20 crores by each person. Kindly take n. a. on them by CBI, ACB etc. so that common man need not give bribes for eny small work. BBMP officials also. Jai Karnataka. Jai corruption free state.
