Drives against corruption continues

Government takes firm stance

We shall keep fighting corruption until it is stopped at each and every level of administration.

The government has pledged to continue its drive against corruption. The present government is doing everything in their part to bring those responsible for corruption to the book.

One of the biggest impediments in Bangladesh’s path to becoming a developed nation is corruption. Alarming indeed that it is prevalent at all levels of administration and in all sectors. Instances of bribery and money laundering are far too common.

Unethical practices like these weaken national institutions and prevent the rule of law. Corruption erodes public trust in government, and creates opportunities for injustice. Corruption is also increasingly linked to violation of human rights and spread of the culture of impunity. 

Due to widespread corruption and mismanagement in all sectors, from police administration, judiciary, health sector to education, etc., people have begun to lose their faith in the respective authorities.

We can only fight corruption if it is

 stopped at each and every 

level of administration

The main reason that corruption is so prevalent is because a vicious cycle operates in each and every office and institution. From junior to senior officials, almost everyone partakes in accepting bribes in exchange of doing service. There is a serious lack of integrity and a sense of duty among the people.

We shall keep fighting corruption until it is stopped at each and every level of administration. To check the slide, strict penalties must be handed to those convicted of corruption. Everyone must remain vigilant and identify sources of corruption in their surroundings.

The government must adopt a zero tolerance policy against corruption in all government organisations and the public sector. Anyone convicted of corruption must be blacklisted immediately in order to deter future criminals.

Every citizen of the country has a duty to their country to work with integrity and honour. Taking the easy way out and handing over bribes to get the job done is only harming our country in the long run. We must change ourselves in order to transform the nation.
