Vigilance Souvenir with excellent articles has been brought by the department, he said and complimented those who supported in bringing out the book.

Shri M Venkatesh, Director Refinery said that the opportunities and avenues have been provided to raise a complaint. But the complaint should be factual, he said.

Shri Arala Rajendra Shetty, Chief Guest of the programme said that today there are two issues which are bothering our society, they are integration and eradication. Mahatma Gandhi had a vision for our country that the truth and honesty should not become casualty at any cost, so be courageous and try to be honest, he said.

Shri H Kumar, our Managing Director complimented CVO and Vigilance Dept. for bringing out ‘Paradarshak’ the Vigilance Magazine with good articles in it. He wished them good luck to carry out various activities during the week successfully.

The direct benefit transfer scheme by the Govt. is a very big scheme towards transparency. This direct benefit transfer need to be extended to Kerosene, fertilizers and MNREGA too, he felt. Media and RTI are the powerful tools in curbing corruption, he said. He concluded by quoting Rabindranath Tagore’s words - ‘Into the heaven of freedom, my father, let my country awake’.
