The Joint Council of State Service Organisations (JCSSO) will form vigilance committees against corruption in government offices. A meeting of Thiruvananthapuram South division of JCSSO on Monday decided that the proposed committees will work for anti-corruption awareness among the staff and public.

The meeting observed that corruption being carried out by a small section of employees have brought disgrace to the entire government staff. “Corruption in government offices is a big threat to the public. It is imperative that a voice of protest should emerge from the employees itself,” the meeting noted. Some delegates pointed out that a good majority of youngsters in government offices are sincere in their work. But many times they are lured or forced into corruption by senior officials. The regional vigilance committees are given the mandate to expose the corrupt officials and prevent the malpractice.

CPI national executive member K E Esmail inaugurated the meeting. Poet Sugathakumari inaugurated a humanitarian gathering against ‘communal fascism’ as part of the meeting. CPI district secretary G R Anil, joint council chairman G Motilal, V P Unnikrishnan, Rakhi Ravikumar, A Nisarudeen, Jayachandran Kallingal, M M Najeem and K P Gopakumar spoke.
