    To help curb such corrupt practices, the land dealing officials/govt.servants must be transferred every two to three years like the Engineers and accountants. This systems of transfer excercise seems working in helping corruptions as far as we know. Thanks and this is in support to help corruptions in our country. We want to help curb such corruptions.

    From now onwards, we must wake up and try our best to help curb corruptions in our common wealth like land and money. Such people alike must be subdued from our society.

    Being a concerned citizen, we are worrying thinking that how can we stop such corruptions played by such power/authority holders at their behest.
    LAND is our common wealth for all of us and it should not be lost to such powerful corrupted people. Because of such corrupted people, the poor remains poor and corrupted people are silently getting richer and millionaires. We want to help curb corruptions but corrupted people seems powerful.
