As corruption has become the lifeblood of Indian politicians and bureaucrats, no government in India is willing to weed it out.

Although the Prime Minister (PM) of India Narendra Modi claims that his government has checked corruption in the country, a new report reveals that India is among the most corrupt countries.

According to Transparency International, a global anti-corruption group, India’s rank for 2016 is 79 in a list of 176 countries that it has studied. In other words, India is more corrupt than 78 countries.

As successive governments have failed to check corruption, a few prominent citizens of India have formed a new anti-corruption group called Citizens Whistle Blowers Forum (CWBF).

It is stated to be a civil society initiative to facilitate efforts to expose and reduce corruption from the society.

Among other activities, the group encourages whistleblowers to reveal the cases of corruption around them so that they could be dealt with appropriately in order to get the culprits punished.

Prashant Bhushan – an Indian lawyer, activist and politician – who also is spearheading the activities of a new political outfit Swaraj India, is among the members of the new anti-corruption forum.
