    I remember, as I was in the middle school, that Kengal Hanumanthiah , the then CM announced after shifting the capital from Mysuru to Bengaluru, that a Vidhana Soudha, worthy of that garden City will be built and named a budget. That was in 1952. The building was then loaded with all kinds of decoration and expensive internal strucral design that the budget amount allocated was trebling very quickly. Nehru then the PM blindly supported every state CM, who were Congress Party members, and brushed aside the warnings that Kengal ‘s Vidhana Soudha will costs a horeesndous amount in the end, and many suspected that the contracts for the construction were awarded to Kengal’s friends and in the end crores of Rupees will go back to Kengal. Nehru dismissed it as the opposition propaganda. In the end , after inauguration, he realised the mammoth budget t this Vidha Soudha swallowed and still needing more decoration, he asked Kengal to set up an enquiry – that was the rumour then. The enquiry team was again packed with Kengal’s friends and Kengal was cleared of any wrong doing by this sham enquiry committee.
    This mini Vidhan Soudha, not needed it appears, as there is health care need as a priority. But then construction of a grand building neeeds contractors, the eventual slice from contract money to the pockets of the politicians in power.
    Kengal invented the corruption on a grand scale in 1952-just 5 years after independence, and the disease has spread from politicians to administrators, institutions and finally the society. Jai Hind! vive la corruption!!
