Will Modi’s dream of eliminating corruption come true ?
Terming corruption as one of the greatest challenge, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has called for special initiatives to end the menace in the next five years with the pledge of 'Karenge Aur Kar Ke Rahenge' (We will do and surely do). He said the menace of corruption has adversely impacted the development journey of the country and has eaten the polity from the inside but will he be able to accomplish the task ? Can corruption be eliminated in India ?

DEBATE (1) Corruption
There is no doubt that the rampant corruption in all walks of our lives today in our country is the biggest threat not only to our democratic set up but to the very survival of this country in its present form. Without going in to the details of cause and effect of this menace, let me come to the crux of the problem. 1) Let us recall the way of lives of our leaders like Dr. Rajendra Prasad, and many of the cabinet colleagues of Pandit Nehru where living with modesty was a norm rather than an exception. Today the PM has to remind his cabinet colleagues again and again not to avail 5 star hotel facilities and shun other perks of PSUs with very little impact on them.It only shows that we have very little or no commitment to our society in general where the per capita income is $ 1850 per annum. 2) The same extravaganza applies to babus, media persons, judiciary and even business persons. The shocking part is that if somebody talks of simplicity in day to day life,he is looked at scornfully. 3) Whether Modi would succeed in eliminating corruption in India or not would depend on two things namely: a) He has to select ministers and CMs who are very modest in their living standards and fire others who do not heed to his advice of living with such modesty. b) He has to confiscate all the properties of at least 50 most corrupt politicians( including 5-6 BJP one's also) and at least 100 most corrupt IAS/IPS/IRS officials in the country and put them behind the bars so that people in general are forced to stop treading this path of living beyond means any more. I am hopeful that once he is re-elected in 2018/2019, he will try to do it with all his might and chances of his success are very high.
