1. Corruption is the bane of all evils
in the society in almost all the countries in the world today. Though,
perhaps, there never was a time when corruption was not prevalent at
all, it has at no point of time in the past proliferated to an extent
as it is today, pervading every field of human activity. Corruption
infringes in to basic human rights, results in denigration of quality
and excellence and eats into every element of virtue of mankind. The
erosion of integrity and decline of morality in public life gained
momentum when no less a person than one of othe Prime Ministers made
light of the issue declaring that "Corruption after all, was a
universal phenomenon. "So, following the dictum 'Yatha Raja Thatha
Praja' every unscrupulous citizen, politician, official or otherwise,
got-bold and indulged in open and blatant dishonest gainful activities.
To reverse the trend, even to a minuscule extent, the country needs a
honest leader. However as a pracitical alternative, conscientious
citizens can come together and work in unison to rid the society of
this evil. With this in view, efforts have been taken to start a
movement under the banner of "Anti Corruption Movement".
2. The intention is not so much asto wield cudgels on the perpetrators
of this criminal offence, but rather to in culcate a sense of openness
and honesty in the men dealing with public and ensure that a common
citizen is able to get things done as a matter of routine which are
rightfully due to him as a legislative privilege. Any number of
instances could be enumerated here, where extra money is demanded by
officials at all levels for doing ones normal duty for which he is
being paid from the exchequer. All the Govt. Departments with out
exception vie with each other in occupying the prime of place in the
matter of corrupt practices. The ignorant common man is left to fret
and fume without being aware asto what to do and which door to knock
at. This organisation aims at extending a helping hand to such people.
