Fight against Corruption is the hottest issue these days in India. Corruption and corrupt are not easy to deal with but is the Government corrupt? Were all the Governments that ever existed in India corrupt? Are all the politicians corrupt? Is it only the Government that is corrupt? Is it the responsibility of the Government alone to remove corruption?
Corruption is and had been no doubt one of the biggest problems of our country but before putting everything on the Government let’s think what causes corruption.
Corruption is caused when it takes longer in legal procedures. People try to do it byother sources or people are made to follow the other resources such as bribe and acquaintance with the big ones.
Another cause of corruption is when the procedures are not customer friendly for example when the people find it difficult to find the forms, the form are tough to fill in, less awareness etc. Here, the agents come in and facilitate people. In this process the agents develop such resources the process becomes even more difficult for the common man.
Corruption is also caused whenthe penalties are imposed and the method to pay the penalty is cumbersome. Not many feel good to carry this burden and prefer to settle the things onsite. This is a very good opportunity for corruption to dig its roots deeper.
There might be many other such reasons where people find it difficult to make their way through and they fall prey at the hands of corruption but in this whole process or in all these reasons was it only the Government that could be held responsible.
Is it not the people that contribute equally for the growth of corruption? Before blaming the Government and the political leaders for corruption should it not be thought that the people have equal responsibility to heal the social diseases that prevail in the country?
Those who ask for bribe or to settle the things in easy ways are also people and those who ask for those easy procedures are also people.
