As a citizen of India, you must know that the Indian democracy works on the four pillars (legislature, executive, judiciary and press). In 2006, Vijay Anand founded the 5th Pillar – an NGO whose sole motive was to fight corruption. In our nation, bribery and corruption looks contagious and is spreading like a viral disease.
With the help of volunteers, The 5th Pillar made people aware of their rights and distributed these notes among them. Information desks were set up at various places for distributing the notes along with pamphlets.
These notes are “paid” in protest by angry citizens who solicit bribes in return for services which are supposed to be free.
Over 3 million of these notes have been distributed in our country. Huge banners were carried to 1200 schools, colleges and other public gatherings.
