Q.

We must look at root cause of corruption in different spheres of activity and create solution to stop the corruption at that level. For example, World Bank IFC says the money spent helped development but not poverty -- according to them only development. Why? Around 30% of it enters directly in to hawala market to convert black money to white. That is when Smt. Indira Gandhi was PM she bluntly told World Bank you give only the money and no consultants. World Bank lends money to eradicate pollution but the law says polluter has to pay. - Please discuss

There are huge volumes of money sitting idle at different places. There are some rich people and too many middle class people who wish to donate for good cause. But everybody is unsure about the intention of those who ask for such money. So such money in many cases ends up in religious named foundations, which are not necessarily have the primary focus of employment creation and poverty removal.

If Indira Gandhiji had stated about lack of consultants, I think, it is truest thing even today. There is a serious lack of expert consultants who can coordinate the distribution of money for poverty eradication.

But I do not agree that the money corruption is only related to the poverty. Just as an example, the recently proven transaction of 200 crores to Kalaignar TV's account, if that was bribery or corruption money, then by what standards were the receivers considered as poor?

Remember the old saying: If you want to know about the true nature of somebody, give him/her all the power ...more
