Going a little away from your question, I would like to say something here.
So far, I have not seen any post here on the forum such as :- "How many crores did Bharadwaj take to let Yedurappa off the hook".
No, I am not saying any such thing, but I see such ideas posted here often in case of MMS taking Crores from A.Raja, or Sonia taking crores from Sikhs for removing names of certain Sikh terrorists from the Black List, or even Pakistan taking Billions to tell USA where bin Laden was hiding etc.
This 'Taking Crores' for getting something done is deeply embedded in our mindset, it seems!!
