Feb 24, 2021 14:22 IST

Anjali Bharadwaj, an Indian social activist working on issues of transparency and accountability, is one of the 12 anti-corruption champions announced by the Biden administration.
According to a statement from the US Secretary of State Antony Blinken, the award recognises individuals who have worked tirelessly, often in the face of adversity, to defend transparency, combat corruption, and ensure accountability in their own countries.
Bhardwaj has served as an active member of the Right to Information Movement in India for over two decades. She is the founder of Satark Nagrik Sangathan (SNS), a citizens' group which promotes transparency, accountability in government and encourage the active participation of citizens.
