Civil society unites in war on graft – Hindustan Times

Moved by popular support to Anna Hazare, the National Campaign for People’s Right to Information (NCPRI), which has suggested alternate anti-corruption mechanism has decided to converge with team Anna on two of the three sticking points with the government. The three issues are covering

entire bureaucracy under Lokpal, a citizen charter providing penalty on officials who fail to deliver services within stipulated time-lines and equally powerful state Lokayuktas. The move is aimed at putting additional pressure on the government to implement an effective mechanism to combat corruption.

“The NCPRI is completely in agreement that all three objectives put forth by team Anna should be addressed immediately,” the campaign said on Friday, an hour before Gandhi hinted that their mechanism was one of the best to fight corruption.
