The Gurgaon range of Haryana state Vigilance Bureau has sought help from the public in curbing rampant corruption in government offices.

The vigilance bureau has launched a ‘Jan Sahyog Aandolan’ to gather information against corrupt officials.

Vigilance officials have started visiting various RWAs in the city and several villages to collect information about government officials.

“The common man is an easy target of corrupt officials. We are taking this step to help citizens, who otherwise feel hesitant to connect to our department,” said Sheel Madhur, inspector general of the vigilance bureau.

“We want to reach out to maximum number of people. The number of complaints against government employees is rising,” added Madhur.

The department is also planning to take the help of various NGOs. The department has launched an official page on Facebook, but the initiative has not produced desired results.

The Gurgaon range of vigilance department keeps a tab on government officials posted in Gurgaon, Rewari, Faridabad, Palwal, Mewat and Narnaul districts in southern Haryana.

The department has conducted raids and caught several officials accepting bribes.
