Bangalore, Apr 1: An inspiring story of an illiterate village boy's crusade against corruption has emerged from north Karnataka's Savanuru.
Peeved and enraged at the lazy and dishonest officers at the Pourasabha, Virupakshappa Mahadevappa decided to end the one-year-long struggle by revolting in his own unique way.
For over one year now, Mahadevappa has been running around the town municipality to get some paperwork for his house done.
Fed up of the circus, Mahadevappa accompanied by his sister Eeramma decided to set up a camp in the office premises. Reality hit the corrupt officials when they found two people living and even cooking there. This also drew attention from the other residents of the village adding more insult to whole state of affairs.
This prompted the blinded officials to open their eyes, stand up and take note of the situation. The work pending for over a year's time was done immediately.
Thus ended the story of running behind corrupt officials for Mahadevappa becoming a great example and paving way for millions of other Indians plagued by the apathy of local administrations to stand up and revolt against it.
