Mangalagiri (Guntur): Mumbai’s Joint Commissioner of Police (crime) VV Lakshminarayana on Sunday felt the need to stem corruption at all levels of society. “When we fail to live honestly, corruption raises its head in society. We cannot separate corruption from our family. When we step out of our house, we become an integral part of the society,” said the former Joint Director of the CBI, who became popular while probing the disproportionate assets case of YSRCP president YS Jaganmohan Reddy.

Lakshminarayana was here to participate in a programme organised by the Aqua Devils Welfare Association at Undavalli near here. He said that fight against corruption should begin from family. “When we say the society has become rotten, it does mean that we confess to our failure to remain good. It is we who should be blamed for such a change in society,” he said.

Lakshminarayana said, “There was no point in bowing down to the corrupt in society we were living in.” When any government servant demands for bribe, make it a point to complain against such persons. This was the only way of fighting corruption, he said.
The Mumbai cop said that corruption was not confined to the corridors of power and administrative machinery. It prevailed everywhere including private sector. Even doctors had not been respecting medical ethics and subjecting the patients to unnecessary medical tests to make a fast buck. Engineers, businessmen and even professionals of film industry were no exception to the phenomenon of corruption.
Anybody involved in making of the films that had an adverse impact on society could be treated as corrupt, he opined. Invited by Andhra Cricket Association chairman Gokaraju Gangaraju, Lakshminaryana also dwelt on the importance of sports to lead a healthy life. “Sports are as important as studies,” he said. He shared some time with the swimmers on the banks of Krishna and mingled with players of volleyball, shuttle and other sports.
