With 16 more such cases of confiscation in the pipeline, the question is whether Bihar CM would succeed in creating more such schools.
Meanwhile, Verma has reportedly moved the Supreme Court, challenging
high court order of Patna August 19, 2011, upholding the confiscation of his property under the provisions of Bihar Special Courts Act, 2009. Originally hailing from UP, Verma has been under suspension from July 2007 after Special Vigilance Unit raided his place and assets worth about Rs 1.4 crore were unearthed.
According to media reports, 361 of 3,321 primary schools in
district alone do not have buildings of their own. Armed with a new legislation, chief minister Kumar said he would like to see more schools run from palatial buildings of corrupt government officials. Patna

too comes up with a better idea of what to do with confiscated properties of corrupt bureaucrats. New Delhi
