Read the following case let carefully and answer the question that follow. 

Island growth was witnessing of living. However, this rapid growth had increased corruption and nepotism in the island. In the recent times, a fear had gripped the population that corruption would destroy the inclusive nature of the society and hinder economic progress. However, most citizens had kept quiet because

(i) they had benefitted from the corruption indirectly, if not directly

(ii) they did not have the time and energy to protest

(iii) they did not courage to rise against the established power centres

There was a need to remove corruption but no one was willing to stick his neck out. Many politicians, bureaucrats and private organisation were corrupt. Media and intellectuals kept quiet, as they benefitted indirectly from corruption. The common man was scared to state’s retribution and the youngsters feared insecure future.

Against this background, an old, unmarried and illiterate gentleman of high moral and ethical authority, Sham, decided to take on the issue of corruption. He sat on a hunger strike in the heart of the capital city of the island. Sham demanded that the Govt. should constitute new laws to punish the corrupt across all walks of life. Media and the citizens of the island gave massive support to Sham. Buckling under the pressure, the Govt. promised to accept Sham’s demands. He ended the hunger strike immediately following the Govt.’s announcement. Sham became the darling of the media. He used this opportunity as a platform to spread the message that only citizens with an unblemished character should be allowed to hold a public office. A few months later, it was found that the Govt. had not fulfilled any of its promises made to Sham. Infuriated, he was thinking of launching another island-wide protest. However, this time, he sensed that not many people and media persons were willing to support him.
