Thiruvananthapuram: A survey by the Centre for Media Studies has revealed that Kerala is a state with very less number of corruption cases compared to others. Reacting to this, Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan said this finding is a remarkable one.

The aim of the state government is not just to reduce corruption but to wipe out corruption entirely, he said, adding that the government has made the Vigilance more transparent with this goal in mind.

The Research and Training wing of the Vigilance and Anti-Corruption Bureau has launched a project to ascertain the corruption rate in government departments in the state. The findings will be published as the Anti-Corruption Index every month.
