SJRS, Kondadaba annual debate focuses on ``Lokpal Bill - Solution to Corruption in India?``
By Vincent Castilino
Hyderabad, Dec. 14. The annual debate at St John`s Regional Seminary, Kondadaba (the Philosophate of the Andhra Pradesh Bishop`s Conference) was held on December 14, 2011.  The theme was `Lokpal bill is the solution to Corruption in India`. Somehow, as in the last four years, the team `against the motion` won the debate with just 10 points more than their worthy opponents (the total being 277). Fr Joseph Anithottam the Parish Priest of Kondadaba, moderated the debate. Srs Prasanna and Abilasha, Fr C. Thomas, the present spiritual director and Fr Devadas, our former spiritual director were the evaluators for the debate.   Fr Wilson, the Principal, was the facilitator.

The eight speakers (four on each side) did their best in presenting their arguments which were well supported and interspersed by the informative videos and presentations prepared by Fr Wilson, the Principal. Thanks to his zealous efforts, the debate had a particular quality of its own. The floor discussion which followed the talks was vibrant with each group trying to get the better of the other. Of course, given the nature of the theme, Anna Hazare was the focus of the whole discussion.  Finally not going by the numerical result of the debate, the fact that corruption needs to be uprooted was the unanimous voice. The Rainbow group, under the guidance of Fr Wilson, organised and prepared this annual feature of the Seminary.

The speakers for the motion highlighted the following issues: Lokpal being an effective and transparent tool in modern administration, an additional help for the wearied middle class man, the advantages of speedy justice and accountability that Lokpal promises and so on. Those arguing against the motion pushed forward their arguments to prove that through Lokpal bill, Anna Hazare and his team, are trying to form a parallel government or an unconstitutional body, that the hidden agenda behind this so-called `second freedom struggle` is to topple the government, that what is needed is not a new body but a reformation within existing structures...
