Therefore due to the direct channel of funds and no other major check and criterion involved, it has become very easy for the bureaucrats and politicians to channelise these funds for their own personal benefits. In order to strengthen the view point for the motion one of the participant quoted the scam in 2006 CDF corruption exposed by a News Channel. Rolling the ball further one of the participants quoted the example of state of Tripura where CDF is only used for the upkeep of temple and religious fervour.
