    True, people would indeed like the status quo maintained when SKS and other MFIs, as an NGO were really catering to the financial needs of the poor. And, the community too were stakeholders/shareholders in the organisation. Unfortunately, we fool people could not understand your hidden agenda of minting money out of the poor people. Return the money which you have made on the name of the poor and Sitaram Rao and then come back, you scoundrel.
