Mangaluru, 23 Jan 2016: The department of political science of St Aloysius College - SAC (Autonomous) here organized a panel discussion on The Fight against Corruption on Friday January 22 from 2.50pm to 4.30pm.


The panel for this event consisted of Lt Col John Noel Serrao, Officer-in-Charge ECHS, Mangaluru spoke about corruption as, ‘Misuse of public power for personal gain’ and that it adversely affects all aspects of our society such as the government, the education system, morality as well as our defense forces. He also said that corruption is preventing our country from becoming a progressive nation.



Vidya Dinakar, social activist, national vice president of Indian Social Action Forum, also a member of the panel urged us to deal with corruption by questioning society’s conventions. She also states that corruption is very tolerated in the Indian society and we need to build up the courage to continue to question authority.


Dr Edmund Fernandes, CEO, Center for Health and Development, Mangaluru - another panelist for this discussion started it off by questioning what society is the most intolerable over. He said, ‘The most intolerable thing is intellectual indifference’ and we need to challenge the credentials of society as corruption cannot be eradicated overnight as it didn’t develop overnight as well.


Dr Suresh Poojary, director of Post Graduate Centre for Commerce, SAC; Dr Alwyn D’Sa, Dean, Faculty of Arts, SAC and Janice Goveas, Faculty of Chemistry, SAC were also members of the panel for this discussion.


Dr Rose Veera D’Souza, HOD, Political Science, Fr Francis D Almeida SJ and Dr Veronica Judith Carlo, vice principal of the Admin Block were also present for the discussion.
