indifference responsible for corruption’
LUDHIANA, Feb 4 — It is
not only the politicians or the bureaucrats who are responsible for the
widespread corruption in the country but it is also the indifference of
the public that was boosting corruption. The middle class has lost
enthusiasm to fight the corruption. Most people are now interested in
buying their personal salvation than fighting for the common cause, said
Mr Joginder Singh, former CBI chief, who was here today to interact with
the public. The meeting was organised by a local departmental store.
