Tame The (I)mperial (P)olitical (L)eague!

Even a rented jhuggi in the capital costs a few grand K. Today RJD is in news for occupying prime real estate at Rs 333 per month even when it boasts of grand ITO head quarters in the Capital. BJP soon after assuming office proposed to give itself two more acres. Both Cong & BJP occupy eight properties each in VP House. In addition, Cong has 5 & BJP 2 bungalows in Delhi. Squatting is common among India’s political elite.The East India Company gave squatting a new name. In the name of doing trade it ruled India from 1757 to 1858. India remained ruled until 1947. Post independence it is the Imperialistic Political League that redefines squatting.  This mindset among the Indian political class is omnipresent. Ironically, narrow vote bank politics divides them bitterly while lure of the land unites them.
