Reach of Corruption ousted the ‘System’..

In his 24-page address after unfurling the tricolor at the Field Marshal Manekshaw Parade Ground here on the occasion of the 58th Republic Day celebrations on Friday, Mr. Chaturvedi said…

“Corruption is not merely a dirty word but also a dirty act.The people should assert that there was no difference between a small act of corruption and major instances of malfeasance. There is no such thing as petty corruption; there is corruption per se…Karnataka was one of the first States to have a Lokayukta, and it was doing great service. “

His speech triggered some frustration within me… So, What went wrong?
What is the progress in the cases filed by the Lokayukta? Has anyone been punished?
Is there any mechanism to track and review the amassed ‘mass’ which already have gathered the momentum!! i.e. The properties made by these corrupt officials are leveraging them beyond the legal catch and has already ‘liberalized’ them economically. How can they be brought to justice? What is the plan? Any thoughts? anyone….

    The problem lies in our laws.

    As per our laws if a person robs someone then the legal scope exists just to the extent of punishing the criminal, return of the stolen goods does not fall under anyone’s gambit. So if one can steal say billions, then even if caught, that person is sent to the prison for theivery and the money which he stole, remains with him.

    Recovery is not part of penal code.

    Example : all the scams. If you notice, then everybody talks about catching the culprit and punishing him/her by sending to prison. Ever heard anyone screaming about returning the funds to the Exchequer. I haven’t.
