Bantwal, September 9: A Society which opposes the corruption ought to be built, in this regard the youth must take a bold step; social reform is needed for you and your siblings, arise now said Justice Santhosh Hegde giving a call to the students.
He was addressing the students at an Awareness programme on the Social and Moral Values organised under the joint organisation of M. Friend’s Mangalore and Degree college Melkar at Melkar Women’s Women’s College.
He expressed his regret saying that, “We are organising the programmes of worshiping the deaconates and richest fellows, developed the practice of praising the rich persons making them to sit on the stage, we lack knowledge on what is supposed to be done and what is not; this has led to the untoward incidents in the society”.
Hegde, in his lecture has pointed by his sharp words about the Corrupt-political system and the wrong actions done in bureaucracy and said, the solution to this is the youths must arise.
When the constitution was framed in our country, it carried the gist “By the people and for the people”. Due to the corrupt political system, there is a discussion about the government that the government is by the few, for the few and towards few. He revealed that, both in Loksabha and Rajyasabha; decorum-seriousness are absent and illustrated about the confusion and vandalism taking place in the assemblies. He urged the students to bring about a reform in the present situation and get back the true meaning of democracy during their age.
He stated with rage, that the corrupts are inhumane and pointed that during his term, he has seen the corrupt officials and the politicians; they are not humane. The greediness brood in them has overtaken their human nature, but you should not become akin, man must have desires but should be alert when it increases; later it turns to greed and leads to their end-described Hegde and suggested to nurture the human nature which develops a feeling of satisfaction within oneself.
