Chan Doraemi
Corruption cripple the society internally. It's the biggest transgressions one can commit besides murder. If one think of the total abstention of corruption from the society, the changes should be brought psychologically and mentally. If one has principles adding up the strong moral values, I don't think he is ambivalence towards being corrupted. And eventually if everyone turn up like that no one can turmoil the smooth running society.
Hrithik Raj
Government should avoid any kind of punitive actions against the college students and strictly heeds towards the supreme court orders. In the verge of elections and protest government is trying to fillip the people to fortify their vote banks. This time the junta should also perform their onus as democracy is designed to work in tandem with government and people.
