This is with reference to the report “Bachchan, Parrikar, Sachin, Ponting ‘beneficiaries’ of MNREGA in Goa” (April 27). It was amusing as well as startling to find that the names of some illustrious sportspersons, film stars and politicians find a place in the list of beneficiaries of a scheme meant for the rural poor. Only a thorough investigation will reveal the truth.
