Judge DCunha has done great national service by convicting Ms J Jayalalitha and others under the Prevention of Corruption Act (PCA). The Rs100 crore fine, even more than jail is a strong signal Jayalalitha is by no means the only corrupt public servant. She may even be more competent than most. But the cleansing process must begin somewhere. As PM proposed all cases against politicians & senior officials should be tried swiftly in special courts. There is no time to lose. India suffered for too long. The yoke of corruption and abuse of office. Now we must demand swift action to root out corruption. If 10 most corrupt public servants are jailed and their ill gotten assets and properties are confiscated in every state, corruption will be a thing of the past. It is tragic that gullible people resort to violence when a leader is convicted. We have a long way to go as a democracy. Jail and confiscation are only the vital first steps in excising the canker of corruption. A lot more needs to be done. Service guarantees law to end petty corruption, competition in resource allocation, decentralization and other steps are now needed. The rival politicians rejoicing now should be ashamed.They are all part of a vicious cycle. Sensible response is to reform and cleanse the system. But now is the time for us to rejoice. Our tottering system still has vibrancy. We can, and shall, prevail soon and transform India. Amen!
