When the Rulers loot the nation: wisdom from “Chanakya”

What to do when the King and the rulers themselves steal from the Treasury of the nation?

This is a tragedy that India has faced again and again.  And now, this has become plunder!  Here is a scene from the TV series “Chanakya” where the Chief Minister catches the swindling of the national treasury by the King of Magadha himself.  He calls him on it and walks out.

What he says is so relevant even today.  Except, that we don’t have such people anymore.
