New Delhi: Reiterating to continue his battle against corruption, Janata Party President Dr Subramanian Swamy on Sunday said to challenge in High Court and Supreme Court the clean chit given by the lower court to Union Home Minister P Chidambaram.

Addressing the public meeting at Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) Swami spoke at length on corruption in national politics. He stressed that there are only two ways to curb corruption prevalent in the country. Firstly, spread of awareness and technology so that working in government offices is computerized. This would help in reducing instances of corrupt means. Secondly, stringent action must be taken against those involved in graft cases.

Advising students to play their role in curbing naxalite menace in the country, Swamy said students must come forward in fight against naxals and prevent rural population from getting exploited by the insurgents.

Swamy also pointed out the problems faced in the Electronic Voting Machines (EVM). He said EVMs are only used in Nigeria, Venunzula and India. Even Japan that manufactures the micro controller used in EVMs does not use this process of voting.

The lecture was organized by the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) ahead of University elections.
