Corruption a cancer in India: Kalam

APJ Abdul Kalam
Dubai, Feb 4: Former President DR APJ Abdul Kalam on Friday, Feb 4 said scrubbing out the corruption from the nation is one of the biggest challenge India is facing at present. He also claimed that India's political-bureaucratic, judicial system urgently needs a chemotherapy at this critical hour, to deal with a cancer-like situation engulfing the country.

He said, “Establishing a corruption-free India is a major challenge. I propose a youth brigade as the solution. 'I can do it. We can do it. India will do it', should be the spirit."

Kalam said that he believe people are loosing the trust and developing a sense of mistrust, anguish, despair and concern over the worsening democratic values and value system, which is elating day by day. He also said there is a need for urgent extraordinary corrective actions.

"If the situation is allowed to continue then we cannot prevent the people taking to the streets and there will be a catastrophic ripple effect, which the nation cannot bear at this moment when India is poised to become a developed nation," Kalam said.
