He said: “There is no doubt that there are people who do not live here but are being paid.

“You must let them know that they are stealing from you.

“My stand with NLC is also to help us identify such people because they are stealing from the state too. And a lot of us know some of these people but we are not talking. As you make your bed, so you lie on it. It is important that you expose those people.
