The Role of Youth in Combating Corruption
Youth in resolving corruption.
Corruption is rampant in our social and political life. Like cancer it is eating into the vitals of the society.Self-serving politicians and their agents and power brokers can stoop to any extent to feather their own nest. No body is free from the needle of suspicion. Corruption seems to rule the roost everywhere. In government offices it percolates from the top to bottom . “You pay the piper and call the tune” or “Money makes the mare go” are the unwritten tents of our administrative – cum – political set up.

It seems that the older generation has given the goby to all that was good in India. It is the youth and specially students who have to take cudgels against the demon of the corruption and crush it altogether. A beginning can be made in this direction by holding anti-corruption drives. The ill-effects of corruption in public life should be publicized through inter school declamation and essay writing contests. Students should take a pledge to resist the temptation of using unfair means in the examination .They can also go step further and persuade their friends, relatives and parents to curb this evil at all cost. The dedicated efforts of honest youth are bound to succeed in the long run in demolishing and vanquishing this social evil which has earned us a bad name.
