The programme began with invocation by Shreya Bhat. B R Shetty, president of Premier Institute of Placement and Research Center Dharwad, welcomed the gathering. Justice Santhosh Hegde, former Lokayukta of Karnataka, inaugurated programme by lighting the lamp.

Addressing the students, Justice Santhosh Hegde said that the Indian Constitution that is meant ‘for the people, by the people and of the people’ has come to mean ‘for some, by some and of some’ after but its repeated misuse by many for their own selfish ends. “This is also because of the lack of moral values in society. One cannot expect complete eradication of corruption; but can expect to control the same, as corruption has its roots with the evolution of society. The root causes for corruption have been greed and lack of humanity. Once greed is contained and people are made known that only genuinely acquired wealth survives, only then can corruption be tamed. The younger generation should be involved in the fight against corruption,” he said, noting that he has spoken in over 760 meetings attended by youngsters.

In the wake of several major scams, such as Commonwealth Games, 2G and Coalgate that rocked the country in the last few years, Justice Hegde underscored the need to evolve a mechanism to prevent siphoning of public funds. “Current education concentrates more on domain subjects and less on teaching ‘moral values’. Moral Science which was taught in schools and which had a key role in developing values in individuals has been scrapped,” he added.
