Maharashtra minister for higher and technical education, Rajesh Tope, said in Jalna on Monday that the corruption was not confined to the government alone, but in fact there was greater corruption in the private sector.
The minister was speaking at a seminar on 'Corruption: Causes and Remedy', organised by Jamaat-e-Islami Hind's Jalna unit, at Master Krishnrao Theatre in Jalna.
Tope said that law alone was not enough to curb the corruption, but ethics too were necessary. Ethics should be taught in schools, he said.
Fear of god and conscience can keep this social evil away, he opined.
MLA Kailash Gorantyal said that the present election system led to the corruption as votes were purchased, which corrupted the politicians.
