It seems the Bangalore Development Authority (BDA) cannot wait to get its hands on the prized piece of land at Karnataka Rehabilitation Centre, commonly known as Beggars’ Colony.
In a clear violation of the High Court orders, BDA engineers along with contractors entered the Colony situated on Magadi Road on Tuesday and tried to put up a board displaying their ownership on the property.
The question is: Why? It is not as if the land will become the personal property of the BDA officials who are doing this. Then why the attempts to grab it, like monkeys trying to grab bananas from temple-goers? Promises to keep or deals to make with under-the-table payments?
