Eight different organizations based in the district are spearheading the anti – corruption drive which kicked off on Friday from Bidur, the district headquarters. The people's representatives and government employees signed a campaign letter against corruption to launch the anti – corruption programmes.
District Coordination Committee Chief, Santaman Tamang, said he was joining the campaign to rid the district of corruption. "The places that we sidestep as simple are the places where extensive corruptions take place," Tamang said, adding "Only if the people raise voices on simple things only then can we realize the dream of ridding the district of corruption."
Bidur municipality's Mayor, Sanju Pandit, stressed on the need for support of all the government bodies, organizations and civilians citing that the people's representatives were continuing the campaign for ridding the district of corruption.
On the occasion, Local Development Officer, Keshar Bahadur Pandit, called for focusing on corruption taking place in non – governmental organizations and not just in the government sector.
