Dr. Neerja Dhingra, Principal of ACFA expressed, “Today’s youngsters are the future of the nation, so it is essential to imbibe values amongst them and make them realise that work done with honesty bears more fruits and to have clean consciousness is more important than filling pockets through corruption or other wrong practices.”

On winning the slogan writing competition Bhanvi Sharma said, “I promise to live with integrity and commit to the high and noble standards of life. It was shocking to acknowledge the high rate of corruption around us. The lectures were given by the expert to reduce the impact of corruption. It was a Versatile and sublime week for all of us.”

Another student, Natasha Chhabra from B.Design semester 7 expressed, “Vigilance awareness week served its purpose perfectly. We learned about the effects of corruption. I was shocked by the Indian cliché way of offering corruption. This week was an eye opening experience.”
