I just signed the following petition addressed to: email@example.com,firstname.lastname@example.org,email@example.com,firstname.lastname@example.org.
Stop Rampant Corruption at RTOs across the country.
In the current times the rampant corruption in Regional Transportation Offices (RTOs) across the country is a serious problem that is causing inconvenience to people from the entire spectrum of the society. It is extremely unfortunate that RTOs, which are a lifeline to today's growing transport sector of our country, reek of corruption.
It is extremely important that adequate steps are taken to eliminate corruption from the RTOs in view of the most unfortunate and outrageous incident that has occurred with my friend, a third year UG Student of Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur.
