Dear Editor,

It is a ritual that has withstood the test of time. Whether it is NC, PDP or INC ruling the State, there is a “thieves honour” among our elected politicians never to discuss the annual audit report of the J&K budget performed by the Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) of India, which bares open all the sleaze in the J&K. In every budget session of the Assembly, this year too – like in the past – the CAG report was tabled barely a few hours before adjournment of the Budget Session of the State Legislature today (January 30). As always, it was totally ignored by the opposition as well as by the treasury benches.

Corruption, not Mr. Azad, rules the State.
