Every indian is some how involved in corruption, and we should think about it.We are increasing it,everyone is involved in few systems which are related to government and knew the working method.Every indian should decide that i will expose corruption which is in his knowldge.I will not take bribe or give bribe and will also stop others from taking or giving it. Lets start from ourselves.Cant we start it ? we need to change the system.Though its tough but we need a start and involvment of people in it.All netizens should publsih corruptions on net, if he cant publish his name he should ciruculate it.
Lets start it with ouselves, yes we can do it
