Calling on the youth to "co-operate" with government in fighting the corruption, Infosys founder N R Narayana Murthy today said branding the entire bureaucracy and the political leadership as corrupt was not correct.
"Tarring the entire bureaucracy or tarring the entire political leadership as being corrupt is not the right way," Murthy said, speaking at a seminar `Youth for Governance', organised by the Public Concern for the Governance Trust.
Saying that the youth must vote, Murthy said, "It's a shame that Bangalore, Bombay and other major cities have had only between 42 to 46 percent of people voting in the elections.
"Take part in voting and vote for the best candidate."
Instead of clashing with the government, the youth must cooperate with it in the fight against corruption, he said.
Regretting that his generation had not lived up to the expectations of today's young generation, Murthy said, "The generation of Nehru, Patel, Rajendra Prasad, led by Mahatma Gandhi, made tremendous sacrifices to get freedom. But I am not so sure that we lived up to your expectations...Forgive us. Remember that you have to demonstrate that you are better than us."
Speaking at the seminar, Mumbai police commissioner Arup Patnaik said a policeman was the "most powerful person" on the earth.
"A policeman is the only visible face of the government. No matter what his qualification is, he is the most powerful man on the earth," Patnaik said, adding that police dispenses justice or injustice on the spot.
Speaking on the shortage of personnel in the police department, Patnaik said, "It is not a question of how many policemen there should be for how many people. It is about how many policemen for how many bad people."
Lauding the Mumbai citizens, he said, "Unlike many other places in the country, in Mumbai, people comply with laws on their own."
