    A recent series of big-ticket corruption scandals in India ranging from the Delhi Commonwealth Games to the 2-G telecom scam have plagued the nation, triggering massive public outrage. Earlier this month 71-year old social activist Anna Hazare held a four-day fast to pressure the Indian government to form a committee of politicians and social activists to finally come up with an effective anti-corruption bill.

    On Tuesday's Riz Khan we ask: Has the problem of corruption been exaggerated and if not how can Indians tackle it? We speak with Kiran Bedi, a social activist and draftee of the anti-corruption Jan Lokpal Bill; and Jagdish Bhagwati, a professor at Columbia University and a Senior Fellow in International Economics at the Council on Foreign Relations.
