Title: Prime Minsiters Relief Fund
aditya14 - October 12, 2005 03:59 AM (GMT)
The Indian Prime minister has promised Rs. 500 crore for relief work in Kashmir, but how much do you think will really get there?
A survey by the times of India said:
"only 15% of government employees give money too the PMRF because they are unsure as too who will get their money, having a good insight in to the happenings of the government they realise the actual onoxious state if affairs regarding these funds, and would rather donate to teh UN or the Red Cross than too any Indian Fund."
The situation is absolutely pathetic, bribery of the highest order, people who really need the money dont get it and people who already have too much add it too their surplus.
Being an Indian i find this aspect of our democracy (?) very upsetting,
Please post your views

It's all CRAP.
The WHOLE Amount Would reach the Needy.
People have built a "corrupt" Picture of the Indian politics in their mind due to which they cannot see the changes.
India has changed man. Corrupion days are almost gone. Can't u see the difference? No corrupt nation can Develop as Fast as India is doing. Indias rowth has been hampered by corrption for a ong time, but now things have changed. India is Donating in Million Dollars to USA and SL then how could u ever think the PROMISED amount won't reach the People.
It surely would. Don't see the PAST Records. They are Bull Sh*t. See wats True. Open ur eyes.
500 Crores reached. :nod:

Decent, we donating money has got nothing to do with corruption level. And India developing does not necessarily mean reduction in corruption, instead it might increase. As I know and most Indians know, corruption is there to stay for a long time to go, although a global phenomenon, it can be widely seen in India due to the enormous number of instituions/industries and the economic status of an average middle class person. Like politics, underworld, Corruption has its own huge market. Although recently there have been checks placed to curb it, a major overhaul is required. More than any thing, the living conditions of the common man needs to improve, which is what acting as food for corruption.
This is what I can say in brief.

I see what u r saying man,
But has the Same common man Made any efforts to Stop this curruption? You and Me would willingly pay 10,000 Donation to get an Admission in a Good school.
Its the common man who gives Rs. 100 when they are challaned.
Its the common man who steal electricity
Its the common man who does not buy a Car on Cash to save the TAX.
What i wanted to say is, India is not Currupt. U and ME are Corrupt.

Mate, people who have all the authority and power are not doing it, you cannot expect people to make such drastic changes. Good that our media is quite strong in exposing people in power otherwise god save us.
Yes agreed with your point that people also need to change, but just one question - how many politicians have been prosecuted for corruption till date? Everybody knows its NIL
