Who is in crisis? Who is not in crisis?

The Karnataka Governor Mr. H.R. Bharadwaj said that "Karnataka State was in crisis".

Which State in India is not in crisis?

Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka, as a matter of fact are in "Joint Crisis".

Both the States are in the grip of iron ore mining mafia. The mining mafia is with BJP , in Karnataka. It was earlier with Congress in Andhra Pradesh. It is, now, with Y.S.R. Congress. The Central Congress Leadership like the Dhritarashtra of Mahabharata acquiesced numerous allegations against Y.S.R. and the mining mafia, during his life time. The same Congress is, now in loggerheads with Mr. Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy.

The Supreme Court has appointed an independent team of investigators to trace out illegal mining operations on the Andhra Pradesh-Karnataka border.

Karnataka Government banned export of iron ore from the ports in that State. Then what will happen? Smuggled export roots through Krishnapatnam Port will rise.

While the issue of illegal mining is sub judice, Centre seems to be more keen on settling its political issues with B.J.P. This has forced All India BJP to ignore the corruption of Mr. Yeddyurappa and support him in spite of land scams.

If Governor of Karnataka is so serious about the crisis, why the Governor of Andhra Pradesh is silent? May be because he is busy visiting temples and bathing in rivers and tanks.

Why do Indian States spend huge amounts to Senior Advocates?

Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, Orisssa, Kerala
All these States have one common problem. River water disputes.

The States are locked up in legal disputes.

These States pay millions of Rupees to Senior lawyers of High Courts, River Dispute Settlement Tribunals, and the Supreme Court.

These States and their politicians of the ruling and opposition hue, suffer from the same superstition. -- the higher the fees the advocate charges, the more efficiently he will present the cases and gets favorable judgements.

We can get exact estimate only if we can obtain a table with the following rows and columns:

Rows: Name of the Advocate.
Columns:

Column 2 : Name of the State;
Column 2 : Amount - Rupees in millions.

Won't it be adequate to request salaried full-time Government employee advocates to argue the cases?
The States can pay reasonable salary scales to the advocates.
