Former Lokayukta N. Santhosh Hegde expresses concern over increasing corruption

Mysuru, October 17, 2022 ( Former Lokayukta Justice N. Santhosh Hegde expressed his concern over the increasing cases of corruption.
Speaking at Mysuru today, Santhosh Hegde said, “Corruption exists from the beginning. However, it has crossed its limits now. It is widespread in every sector. Greed is the main reason for corruption. There was greed even during older times, but now it has increased too much.”
He welcomed the winding up of ACB and brought the Lokayukta to existence once again. “A person had appealed in the Hon’ble Supreme Court questioning the cancellation of ACB and bringing the Lokayukta to existence once again. However, the Hon’ble Supreme Court has upheld the government’s decision of cancelling the ACB. Accordingly now the government should strengthen it. It should appoint the required staff. Lokayukta has the strength to fight against corruption,” he added.
