In his Independence Day speech, the prime minister said that a reason for corruption was the need for “approach” felt by people while applying for jobs.
He said sometimes a candidate is high on merit list for a job but is rejected in the interview.
“We should end this. Interview can be held for jobs where personality or appearance is important,” Modi said.
