Expressing doubt about the success of Anna Hazare's movement against corruption, Tushar Gandhi, great-grandson of Mahatma Gandhi today said that corruption is unlikely to stop just because there is a strong law in place.

Delivering the first Mahatma Gandhi memorial lecture on 'India: A Moral Crisis-The Gandhian Answer', he said crime takes place even when there is a provision for punishment.

"I don't believe that just because there will be a law or system of punishment, that will stop corruption. Corruption will stop when we all decide 'not to give and not to take'," he observed.

Anna Hazare should have put up a mirror to our society and show us our own corrupt ways and how morally corrupt we are today.

"Bapuji had said if you want to change the world, first change yourself. So, such change must come from within us," he said.

Tushar further said the true rot is in the system and this is what we must be worried about but this is what nobody wants to address.

He, however, maintained that he did not want to run down Anna's movement. "What Anna is doing it is his own crusade and it is his own way of doing things and he is entitled to do it. We must not bind him to the Gandhian ideology," he said.
