WATCH | ₹17 Crore Cash Recovered From IAS Officer Puja Singhal IN Jharkhand
In yet another shocking case of corruption, ₹17 Crore in cash was recovered from IAS officer Puja Singhal's residence. The total siezure was Rs 19 cr and total worth of assets seized were over Rs 117 cr.
Here is how much that amount is worth:
That is average annual income of 2973 Jharkhandis
That is 30% of what the Government spends on housing for 4 cr citizens
That is 12.5% additional allocation for Mid Day Meals for 40m school children
Not only is this an egregious case of corruption but also goes to show that the Modi government's justification for demonetization, that it will prevent corruption and eliminate 'black' money, has once more fallen flat on its face.
