Dear Friends,

As your invitation comes after I have committed myself to other people I will not be able to attend the meetings. As you also know, I have very little day to day give and take with the corporate world. In fact I am a critic of its world view. Nevertheless, I understand that the world is plural and contains many perceptions and practitioners of ideologies. Also that we must dialogue.

What may be of use to all of us, is that the corporate world acknowledges, that it is as prone, if not more to corruption as Government or any other institution of large or small scale management , unless it is governed by the same set of transparency and accountability norms We have argued that the NGOs, the Political Parties, Religious Institutions and all else should have been covered by the RTI law. Our initial draft, prepared in 1996 under the Chairmanship of Justice Savanat when he was heading the Press Council of India, categorically included all those who spent public money to be equally accountable. Unfortunately the final draft kept out private institutions from the purview of the law.

So do bring in private responsibility for public spending in line with that of government. For the ordinary person, money lost from whatever mismanagement is the same. Aruna Roy
