Corruption in Haryana
“Faridabad editor arrested to silence a newspaper', I happened to come across the above mentioned article dated February 2002 of yours and would like to give you feedback on the matter. I am resident of Faridabad, I am unaware of the referred publication but yes I am aware of this SSP Ranbir Sharma. It is true that he is the son-in-law of I.D. Swami.
What you don’t know is that he is a Stooge of CM Chautala and is thoroughly corrupt. In Haryana, if you write anything against the administration or judiciary they all gang up against you like a bunch of street kids. There is no redressal forum for the residents of Faridabad. I have been trying for quite some time to get the records for the amount spent by the administration on repair and maintenance of the roads but to no avail.
While, this is my right as a taxpayer, the administration takes it as an offence. There is so much of corruption in the system that it stinks. I want you to highlight the same through your forum and help us. – R.B. (By e-mail)
