The valuable message that ‘zero currency' puts into circulation



Note of propaganda:Driving home the message through currency note in Cuddalore.


CUDDALORE: 

            The ‘zero currency' has made a mark in Cuddalore even while the officials and police have been grappling with the problem of curbing illegal money circulation and capturing the surreptitious operators who are bent upon bribing the voters.

           Designed on the model of the Rs.50 currency note, but bigger in dimension and laminated, the ‘zero currency' mocks at the practice of bribing the voters. On the obverse side it carries the figure of smiling Mahatma Gandhi and the wordings “Eliminate corruption at all levels” and “I promise to neither accept nor give bribe.”

             On the reverse side it carries the wordings “Encourage, enable and empower every citizen of India to eliminate corruption at all levels. There is also a disclaimer that “it is not a currency note.” The ‘zero currency' notes are being put into circulation by members of the 5th Pillar, a non-governmental organisation, and that of the Makkal Sakthi Katchi (Lok Satta) of M.S. Udayamoorthy. They state that bribery is a form of corruption punishable with either suspension or jail term or both. The canker of corruption has permeated into all spheres and has eaten into the very vortex of the political, social and economic systems. Therefore, the onus is on the people to eradicate the malaise that has of late assumed menacing proportions.

          They suggest handing over of the ‘zero currency' to those who demand bribe and if done so they will get the message straight that they are in for trouble, because the officialdom is fully aware that the handlers of zero currency have got the backing of an organisation.

Shadow government

            T.E. Chitrakala, State coordinator of the “Student against corruption and also the Makkal Sakthi Katchi candidate for the Cuddalore Assembly constituency, told The Hindu that she was carrying the message to the students, from the SSLC to the college level, that corruption could be eliminated if they so desired.
They should concentrate on bringing about a change in politics that would suit the new generation and take the country on the trajectory of growth.
Ms. Chitrakala further said that her party had fielded 35 candidates, including five women, in 18 districts in Tamil Nadu. After the elections they would form a “shadow government” to keep a vigil on the new government and take up the people's cause with vigour.
She said that the members of the 5th Pillar and the Makkal Sakthi Katchi would not be deterred by the play of money power in the elections or in any other departments. They were sure that the ‘zero currency' concept had caught up with the people and instilled in them the courage to act. Therefore, Ms. Chitrakala foresees a gradual but a positive change among the people for electing the leaders imbued with honesty and integrity.
