India going through 'transparency revolution', but not ready for transition: Antony

June 8, 2011 - New Delhi

Commenting on the mass movement against corruption being carried out in the country, Defence Minister A. K. Antony on Wednesday said India is passing through a 'transparency revolution'.

"Our country is passing through a revolution, a transparency revolution. The walls of secrecy are crumbling in every field, like politics, administration, judiciary, business and journalism. The trend has already started; you can't stop it mid-way," Antony told mediapersons at the Press Club of India here.

"This transparency revolution will apply to all walks of human life, all organisations and ultimately all families," he added.

Antony further said India is still not ready to accept the transition, but added that will become a habit over a period of time.

"The transition of this transparency revolution has started. But India is not ready at all. Indian politicians, Indian businessmen, Indian bureaucrats, Indian journalists are those who hold key positions in India. They are still not ready for the transition," said Antony.

"That's why there are a lot of problems. But after a few years, this will be fine. It will become a habit," he added.
