The Adarsh building, symbolising greed and nepotism in the heart of Mumbai, is set to be demolished after an order by the Bombay High Court. But the question still remains whether razing of the building will be enough to ensure justice since many accused continue to be in influential positions.
The Adarsh building scam is not a new political phenomenon, but the decision of the Mumbai High Court to raze the building to the ground is. The building, since its inception, had been primarily allotted to the widows and the family members of the martyrs of the Kargil war in 1999.
