  1. We believe in equitae distribution of wealth of the nation. Corrupt practises endanger the health of the nation and incapacitate the workability of the state. In order to ensure the state that works for all, we must support crusade against corruption.
  2. Economic injustice breeds instability, breakdown of law and order and possibly revolt. Corrupt practice is a twin pillar of economic injustice. Corrupt enrichment of a few leads to poverty of many. And the majority will not have a choice than to revolt against an unjust system. Guiding against a rebellion against the state, our organisation have to join hands with other public spirited organisations in fighting against corruption in all its ramifications”.
