    The money shown here is not in significant amount to be called corruption. They may have received it for different purposes like for promoting the quality of their newspaper which is not a bad thing. Well why don’t you make it public how much Girija received from India to feed the mob Maoists forcefully brought from Kavre and Dhading. We would be happy if you could make it public. Reports say Girija received 30 crores of Indian currency from the Indian govt and he spent 15 crores out of that. Rest of the 15 crores went to his pocket. We all know most of the mobsters received Rs. 500 + 1 beer + good meal for the demonstrations. We know the Maoists even took their haajeeri.
