The organiser of the event, Rubina Lone, who is an assistant professor at a local medical institute, said the vigil was meant to create awareness among the youth. 'This event is to raise awareness about the menace of corruption in the state', Lone said. She said the vigil is being held under the banner of Kashmir Corruption Watch, which she defined as an 'idea'. 'It is not an organisation but an idea. We want to tell young people that corruption and corrupt people should be detested', she said.
