Attention: open in a new window.

Mangalore, May 19: Samudaya, a cultural troupe that is taking out a state wide cultural jatha to highlight the problems posed by corruption and price rise arrived in the city on Saturday evening.

Gurkar of Mandd Sobhann Eric Ozario, inaugurated the Jatha in front of the office of Deputy Commissioner here at 5:30 pm.

Speaking on the occasion Surendra Rao, state committee secretary of Samudaya, said creating awareness among the public to safeguard democracy, was the main task of Samudaya, which came into existence, in 1975, when democracy was in danger in this country.

Mr Rao said entire system should be changed in the country to protect the democracy, as all its three estates have drowned in corruption. “Unfortunately, a major part of the Indian media, the fourth estate of democracy, too become corrupt, and apparently involved in scandals like 2G spectrum,” he lamented.

Only a powerful Jan Lokpal bill at the Centre and bringing all the religious institutions, godmen and corporate entities under the ambit of RTI act, can control the rapid growth of corruption at this stage, he pointed out.

Cartoons sketched by famous cartoonists were displayed, awareness songs sung, and street drama staged on the occasion. A literary book exhibition and sale was also conducted as part of this jatha.

The statewide jatha, which began in Gulbarga and Dharwad simultaneously, on Friday May 13, is expected to conclude in Bangalore on May 25.

Vasudeva Ucchila, secretary, Samudaya, Mangalore, artistes Vijaykumar Kodialbail and Chandrahas Ullal were also present.
