* India can win gold for corruption, Guru Ramdev says

Times of India: “If the Olympics gave a medal for corruption, India could have won a gold, yoga guru Baba Ramdev said on Friday as thousands poured into the Ramlila Grounds here for day two of his fast.

Calling on all of India to support his agitation against black money and graft, Ramdev said: “India could have won gold if there was a competition for corruption in the Olympics.

The crowds, which had started gathering since 8am, cheered and clapped enthusiastically, to which Ramdev said, “This is not a matter to applaud.””

via India can win gold for corruption, Ramdev says – The Times of India.

Both India and China are in the middling levels of Transparency International index of corruption, though amongst the top of the larger economies.  However, whereas China appears to be trying to tackle it at the national level, it is far from obvious that India is trying to do so.
