At a time when the government is pooling all its efforts to wash away the stains of the largest scams that has rocked the nation, CAG or the comptroller and auditor general report has exposed the Dr. Manmohan Singh government completely.
While delivering a lecture, speaking in reference of the Adarsh scam, 2G spectrum scam and CWG scam, the comptroller and auditor general Vinod Rai said that, “We have chief ministers who have had to vacate their positions allegedly for graft, on whom courts and other judicial bodies have made adverse pronouncements. We have Members of Parliament who are being indicted by the judiciary for various acts including accepting cash for exercising their vote in Parliament.”
Not stopping here, he added that, “Governance is at its lowest ebb. The morale of civil servants is low. The situation is too deleterious for the nation. There is too much at stake for too many in such a situation. Today, we are facing a testing time in the history of our nation. There has been an erosion of people’s faith in government. Their confidence in public institutions has declined. National trust in bureaucracy including the police force has collapsed. The integrity and professionalism of civil servants is being questioned”
