    The next step in the war against corruption would be a crackdown on benami property, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said Sunday, as he again thanked people for enduring the “pain” caused by scrapping of high-value currency.

    Modi, who has come in for heavy criticism for scrapping Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes that has triggered a cash crunch, said if curbing corruption and ill-gotten wealth required “even tougher steps, those would be taken”.

    “You are possibly aware of a law about benami property in our country which came into being in 1988, but neither were its rules ever framed, nor was it notified. It just lay dormant,” Modi said during the year’s last edition of Mann ki Baat, his monthly radio programme.................................

    People know that few state elections are due in 2017.

    And just before those elections, all these dramas, (mark my words, after elections, no one will cry about black money).

    Obviously, not that hard to understand the reasons behind it.

    Anyway, it will be great, if this time, the establishment do their home-work properly before they start any new thing.

    I am saying these bcz India is very famous for its bureaucracy, one of the most notorious in entire world.

    Politicians announce their super-duper things, for their own benefits (keep in mind, 2017 state elections).

    And at the end, ordinary people get their a$$ kicked by notorious bureaucracy.

    So better is, what ever they come up with, make it very simple for ordinary people.

    Or else get ready, 2017 is election year anyway. :wink: :yo:
