Former Comptroller and Auditor General of India Vinod Rai on Wednesday said people should come forward and question government policies for better governance.

He was delivering the keynote address at 116th annual session of the Indian Chamber of Commerce and Industry. Laying emphasis on responsibility and commitment of every citizen to be a part of the nation-building process, Rai said for the purpose, the Right to Information Act would be an added advantage.

“The three pillars of the Indian Constitution, namely the judiciary, the executive and the legislature, in addition to the fourth estate or the media, are the strongest  forces present in our country. The common man should make his presence known in the country by joining these forces in the process of bringing about a change in the society,” he said.

Exports awards were given to various companies who excelled in different categories of businesses on the occasion. President of Indian Chamber of Commerce and Industry Nishesh Shah and vice-president Abdul Azeez were among those who spoke on the occasion.
