Some of those who voted YES had this to say:
• Yes, it makes some impact in awareness, but to eradicate corruption it depends on the will of the people.
Some of those who voted NO had this to say:
• No. Its just routine formality
• No. Corruption is in our DNA. Vigilance Awareness Week every year will not make any difference. It will be just like our beloved Hornbill festival for which cores of rupees is misused every year.
• No. Corruption will never end until we give them chah-tamul khorcha.
• No. Majority of the Nagas are not aware of it.
• No. The corruption is deep rooted in the government and politicians, with no accountability or sending the guilty to jail, it does not work, waste of time and money it’s a show only without any results. How many government employees have been prosecuted over corruptions? None
• No. Because vigilance department is also corrupted and under minister
• No. They are fraud they have done survey and finding all the misuses of fund but after that they become victims to the one. So all is income sources… Not for truth and right implementation.
• So far what they had done to get even a single rupee? In fact this question doesn’t suit vigilance commission.
• Not one bit! Just sheer waste of public money!
• No, hopeless.
Some of those who voted OTHERS had this to say:
• It’s not a fair question. I think the Vigilance Awareness Week is meant to remind us the need to fight corruption and the week is for the purpose of creating awareness. The VAW cannot eradicate corruption.
• It’s like celebrating our birthday every year.
• I think Nagaland Govt. is just wasting public money on department that does Nothing but simply draws salary.
