Thiruvananthapuram : Not all in service are corrupt. However there are certain people who have secured doctorate in how to commit corruption, said Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan. CM was speaking at the inaugural of Kerala Municipal Corporation Staff Union(KMCSU) State Conference, referring to the Palakkayam bribery case.
The government is firm on decision there would be no compromise with regard to corruption. Some have known the taste of corruption. They cannot however get away scott-free forever. When caught, they will face consequences. There is no closely-guarded secret these days. Some may not have accepted bribe in the technical sense. However, is corruption possible without knowledge of those around ? , asked CM, adding that, members of general public should not be viewed as enemies.
