A highly disciplined man, Justice Hegde, as the Lokayukta of Karnataka, has proved a nightmare to the corrupt officials and bureaucrats. Determined to root out corruption from the society, he strongly believes that this can be achieved if the younger generation makes up its mind. He has been oft and again giving a clarion call to the students to raise voice against corruption. During his tenure, several skeletons have rolled down the cupboards of various government departments in various parts of the state and several officers trapped for possessing disproportionate wealth. But the dangerous tentacles of this evil called corruption is continuing to spread far and wide and it is only determined efforts on the part of the society that can crack down this menace.
