Every year the vigilance awareness week campaign affirms our commitment to promotion of integrity and probity in public life through citizen participation. The themes for the elocution competition for the students to mark the vigilance awareness week included corruption, transparency and anti-corruption movements. The important issues raised by the speakers included the pervasive corruption in Indian society at all levels, anti-corruption laws not being enforced, and political and administrative corruption. Drawing on popular anti-corruption movements in the past, some of the contestants offered suggestions on making India corruption free with most entries stating that this was one of the biggest roadblocks to national progress. The winner of this event was Bhagat Kulkarni from 5th semester, Mechanical for his entry on eradication of corruption. The Vigilance Awareness Week is observed from Oct 27 to Nov 2, during the week in which the birthday of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel falls. The last date for entries were submitted as mp4 files of about 3 minutes each was Nov 2, 2020. The elocution competition was organised by Write Angle, PES student club.
