Basic amenities like a house, safe drinking water, toilet and clothes are far from their reach.

The main reason for this is the prevalence of wide spread corruption in our system which blocks the fruits of economic growth to reach the common man, Sri Panda told. CVC, a statutory body was established by the act of the parliament to root out corruption in the public sector.
