This land is not yours to give

It was a happy day for the citizens of Calcutta yesterday, when the Supreme Court quashed the land allotment made by the recently ousted Left Front govt of West Bengal to former cricketer, Saurav Ganguly. The cricketer had been granted a sizeable chunk of prime land in Salt Lake to start a private school, with all norms being given a go by, thanks to his friend, Asok Bhattacharya, the former urban development minister. The Supreme Court rebuked the Left Front government for adopting “questionable means” to provide the plot and “failing to discharge its constitutional role”.

As long as the plot is meaningless, there is no use in going on with it. It must abide by the constitution.

And may I add that, the giving away national properties to popular people is an insult to the people who work all day to build the country, who in turn own these too.
