Yes I am agree about the sting operation used in many of the places in order to shows the reality among other. These sting operations involved when the person involved in it is very tense about the actual situation of society, he/she has to put a action against this so he/she be staring sting operation. I thank to most of our news editor who were involved in it. And put the reality among the world.

Also keep in mind that when we make a string operation it should be reasonable and about the critical situation.

Let us take one example of mine once a postman in chandigarh, is taking bribe each time when there is a mail (post) for me. When I refuse to pay it he will told to me that he will not give me the mail, thats why one day I make his sting operation using my mobile and then, shown the video next time my latter is there, form that day that person change its behavior and my sting operation is success.

A sting operation is right but, not in case of blackmailing other for this.

Primarily, sting operations are carried out due to the lack of trust on either the government or an institution or an individual. So if there is no place for trust, obviously these sting operations would pop up. If asked whether or not it should be carried out!. I would say yes!they should be but with substantial information!rather then making it a marketing agenda!

Yes I agree that sting operation should have to be carried out. Because for a developing nation like India the corruption is really becoming an obstacle. Even we can know that a lot of black money is being saved in the swiss bank with which now India can be one of the rich country. Still the govt. Is not able 2 solve this matter. Sting operation will really help us in this matter so that the poorer people who really work but did n't get their success result can be avoided from their curse.

I am in favor of the topic because corruption is increasing day by day from lower rank person to higher rank. Every department is full of corruption. Corruption is not only means by money,it also relates with character,emotional factors like Jessica's murder case..these kind of operations help in find ing the wrong one and make us aware that what is going wrong around us... I am highly inspired by the reality shows like Emotional atyachar though it is not wholly true..

I would like to add a point on this note. Sting operation carried by the media professionals or others, apart from revealing names of corrupted people also in a way exposes illegal gains and also their under the table connections with the anti-social elements. On the contrary, sting operations maintains the interest of common people

Yes,I am in favor of the sting operations. In a country like India where corruption is at its peak and law is going ineffective against it, perhaps ways like sting are the only means who can help it. However sting operations should function in a decorum and should not play with one's personal life. And the channels should use them only for increasing their TRP. Hence, sting operations preserving human values is a need.

Sting operations are actually an eye opener to most of our societal problems. However, one should know when to draw the line. I would support the cause of a sting operation to reveal a corrupt politician who embezzles crores of rupees. But I definitely wouldn't support a sting operation conducted by a wife who want's to catch a cheating husband.
It's all about the magnitude of the cause, and knowing when and where to draw the line.

The person who is carrying out the sting operation must be well informed,neutral with his work he should not carry out operation for money or under pressure.Now adyas it is done basically by the news channel to raise there TRPs,now their main aim is to serve Vulgarity.Hence gov. should take strict action against such channels such that if in future any string operation has be carried out it must b related to public welfare.

In my opinion sting ooperations have a become a integal part of the Indian society. It is these sting operations which have reavealed many hidden stories of the Indian society. Not to forget the cases of our ministers & many top officials ranging from business to sports. The government is of the people, by the people, for the people, and it is the right of every Indian citizen to know what is happening right aaround him. I suppose the time has come to reveal those lurked speices in our society and to eliminate them.

I believe sting operations should be carried out. It may be called as a step towards restricting corruption.
It is the right of every citizen to be informed about his surroundings and stop oneself from falling into one of the many scams that go around.
People will not stop until their hidden faces are exposed and it is absolutely essential for the well-being of the nation.
