Take vow to end corruption: Hegde

Take vow to end corruption: Hegde

Former Lokayukta Justice N Santosh Hegde gave a clarion call to the people to will themselves to root-out corruption at all levels, saying it is not possible to bring social and economic reforms in the society otherwise.

Participating at a programme organised at the Government First Grade College in the city on Wednesday, he said corruption has crept into every sphere and unless one voluntarily contributes to oppose it, the future will be disastrous.

However, he lamented over the fact that neither the corrupt people are being punished nor stringent action is being taken against them. “If the trend continues, the common man will have tough days ahead in leading a life.”

“Everyone should vow not to give or take bribe at any levels and this small step can do more in checking corruption,” he added. Freedom fighter D Marappa was present.
