Kalam asks youth to start fighting corruption from home

Former president APJ Abdul Kalam on Sunday asked the youths to start fighting corruption from their homes.

Panaji: Former president APJ Abdul Kalam on Sunday asked the youths to start fighting corruption from their homes.

"If a daughter or son goes and tells father not to be
corrupt, then it will certainly bring a change. The youths
should tell their parents that corruption is bad," Kalam said
in his address at DD Kosambe Memorial Lecture.

"Just imagine a son or daughter walking to their father
and telling that corruption is our enemy, it’s bad and he
should not be a corrupt person. That would make a huge
difference," he said.

Speaking about his much talked about vision 2020, Kalam
said that recessionary trend had halted the Gross domestic
product (GDP) growth of the country.

"But now the recession is over and GDP growth is good.
If GDP continues to be 10 per cent over the next eight years,
then India can emerge as an economically strong nation by
2020," he said.
