PRIME Minister Mr. Narendra Modi chose an appropriate forum, the NCC rally, to renew his pledge to continue fight against corruption. It is unfortunate that the young generation has grown in the atmosphere of massive corruption at all levels around them.  Like many others, the youths also saw a ray of hope in Mr. Narendra Modi, who had made corruption an election plank. Thus, his party, the BJP, was voted to power. The Prime Minister too acted swiftly and set up a Special Investigation Team to unearth black money in the first Cabinet meeting. This was followed by several anti-corruption measures. The message given by the Government was loud and clear-that corruption will not be tolerated.

This helped in creating a positive atmosphere in the country, as a result of which, several big leaders, including former Chief Ministers involved in corruption were put behind bars following court orders. Since crores of youths would soon become responsible citizens once they graduate, the Prime Minister was right in raising the issue of corruption before them.
