Why only 'final' be applied as access modifier in local variables? What is wrong with public,private and protected.

The final modifier is a non-access modifier which can b applied to class,method r variable..the local variable has the scope of only the method itself ...so there is no need for access modifiers like public,private r protected ....

thanks & regards

because, purpose of final is to declare constant variables.
