Bribe Bandh is collecting one million clicks to influence the Indian Government to tighten its laws against corruption.
WHY PRESSURISE THE INDIAN GOVERNMENT TO RATIFY THE UN CONVENTION?
India is one of the 140 countries that has signed the UN Convention against corruption. But signing alone is of no use. The government is under no pressure to make its anti-corruption laws stricter unless it ratifies the Convention. Its time for all Indians to come together and demand for change.
WHAT WILL HAPPEN IF INDIA RATIFIES THE CONVENTION?
- Politicians and bureaucrats can be jailed for trying to influence courts and cops.
- Politicians and bureaucrats can be jailed for favouring business houses or lobbies.
- Corrupt business people can be jailed for bribing; their companies will be punished too.
- Money earned wrongfully, through corruption, can be forfeited.
