Political Angle in Land Mafia
In the Golden Old days, Land mafia is linked with the anti social elements and the mafia gangs. But the trend is changed according to the people, now the royal way that the politicians found for occupying the Public or Government Lands is their power i.e. not the muscle power but it is the political power.
The Political calculations in India changed alot in the recent times, party funds are coming from the big business tycoons and in returns they are granted with the rich mineral lands in the country.
The Best example for this discussion is the extraction of the stories revealed in the past recent about the reddy brothers in karnataka, congress leaders in andhra pradesh etc.
In its new role as a regulator, Indian Bureau of Mines (IBM) has started granting licences for exploration of offshore minerals estimated to be worth Rs 28,000 crore in the country's exclusive economic zone (EEZ).
Out of all these licenses, most of the licenses are granted to the relatives or well wishers of the existing politicians who are in power in their respected states.
