Anti-bribe campaign launched


New Delhi, July. 1 (PTI): A 15-day ‘Drive Against Bribe Campaign’ aimed at eliminating the scourge from various government departments and creating awareness about the Right to Information (RTI) Act among the public was launched here today.

More than 700 organisations across the country have come together as part of the campaign during which the public will be advised on how to get their work done in the government without paying bribes.

“Assistance centres would function in 48 cities spread across 16 states in the country during July 1to 15. 1500 trained volunteers will help people in making and filing RTI applications in these centres,” said Arvind Kejriwal of NGO ‘Parivartan’, one of the organisers of the campaign.

The Central Government has also made its own arrangements for the campaign by directing all departments and Ministries to make necessary arrangements to deal with the large number of applications, which could be filed during the campaign period, he said.
