The PM is right

Our PM has made a specific statement while delivering an address at the Indian Institute of Management Kolkota that “Lokpal alone will not solve the problem of corruption” and he is right on target on that.  Whether he meant the Lokpal Bill being introduced by the Government or the Jan Lokpal Bill from Team Anna, we do not know.

But no matter what it is, to solve the problem of corruption calls for a strong political will from the powers that be at the Centre and the States (that will spawn amongst others e-Governance initiatives on the citizen facing interaction for better transparency) and a determination amongst the citizens not to give bribes to get things done when it should be done normally or get away from problems of their own making.

No matter what the Government does or doesn’t, are we ready to keep our end of the bargain so that the menace of corruption is kept under check?
