SALEM: The 5th Pillar, a non-governmental organisation for fighting corruption, has conducted sensitisation programmes here on Friday urging people to refrain from giving or accepting bribe.
The programmes were organised as a part of the organisation’s State-wide campaign.
The need to eliminate corruption and Right to Information Act were explained during the programmes.
Earlier at a meeting on Thursday, organisation president Vijay Anand released the ‘zero rupee’ note in the district. Pledge
It has a pledge ‘I promise to neither accept nor give bribe’ printed both in English and Tamil.
The notes were being distributed to the public to encourage them to fight corruption. A signature campaign was also being conducted to make students in the schools and colleges aware of the need to fight corruption and to garner their support for the cause, the release said.
