In order to fight corruption with the participation of people, the Vigilance and Anti-Corruption Bureau (VACB) Friday launched two mobile applications which can be used to report graft. 


The apps, 'ArisingKerala' and 'Whistle Now ' were unveiled on the occasion of International Anti-Corruption Day by Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan.


The project has been initiated by Vigilance Director Jacob Thomas as part of creative vigilance strategy.


The apps can be used to upload audios and videos related to corruption and help bring the culprits before the law. 


Speaking during the inauguration, the Chief Minister said the government would bestow whistleblowers award every year for those who expose corruption.


Referring to quick verification by Vigilance against high officials in the state officials, Chief Minister said the VACB agency would investigate allegations against anybody if it receives any complaint. But it is not right to crucify a person even before the allegations are proved against them.


The apps can be downloaded from Google Play Store.
