The Court also observed that large-scale corrupt practices in public services were causing untold agony, and that common men were struggling even to get their rightful legal benefits as a result.
“Corruption is a devil in the society. Corruption is an antidevelopment phenomena. Corruption is the blockage for the developmental activities of our great nation. Corruption causes greater injustice to the society at large, more specifically, to the poor and downtrodden,” said the judge.
Pointing out a worrying trend in the country, the Court went on to say,
“Public servants are receiving the salary from the tax~payers- money. The responsibility and accountability is the constitutional mandate. Public servants are expected to perform their duties with utmost care and by maintaining absolute integrity and honesty. However, in reality, the state of affairs prevailing in our great nation is the worrying factor. People are frustrated with the large scale corrupt practices in public services.”
