Earlier this month 71-year old social activist Anna Hazare held a four-day fast to pressure the Indian government to form a committee of politicians and social activists to finally come up with an effective anti-corruption bill.
On Tuesday’s Riz Khan we ask: Has the problem of corruption been exaggerated and if not how can Indians tackle it?
We speak with Kiran Bedi, a social activist and draftee of the anti-corruption Jan Lokpal Bill; and Jagdish Bhagwati, a professor at Columbia University and a senior fellow in international economics at the Council on Foreign Relations.
