Fighting corruption has not erased the malady form the society. Mudslinging by political opponents to ride each other down has been the centre of the game. Political outfits whose existence came because they agreed to root out the disease today are caught in its own web. Centre should make graft taking and giving legitimate with a variable slab for Income Tax at least government will get some revenue and in due course of time it will become the largest revnue gainer for government! Today who is not caught in the web of bribe, graft or the corruption. The political fight has not stopped both BJP and Congress are fighting to establish the onus of who is more corrupt. Politically there is no deal that takes place without money being exchanged at various levels. The loud noises created during the Assembly elections has kept the nation busy with clean image of BJP and its leaders. The present ruling party too is not that clean to claim the highest pedestal. The fact is that corruption and politics are the two inseparables of the present day system. The worst casualty of this political squabble is the defence forces who are pushed back in the modernisation drive . Since March 2013 some of the cases have not gone a step forward and now to trace the money trail Enforcement Directorate officials would be going on a seven nation tours as most of the countries involved except Italy has not ceded the ED’s judicial requests. Why not government bring in legislation to make corruption legitimate rather spent crore in investigating how it took place? Government can have a share of such deals for the developmental projects. Make corruption legitimate and tax it to gain some more revenue for both states and the Union Government.
