New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Thursday that “corrupt people should not be allowed to escape at any cost, and they shouldn’t be given political and social protection,” while speaking at a Vigilance Awareness Week event hosted by the Central Vigilance Commission at the Vigyan Bhawan in Delhi.
According to the Prime Minister, “We must avoid corruption because it is bad.” In the past eight years, we have been working to reform the system that was created by “abhaav” (lack) and “dabaav” (pressure).
When the Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) unveiled its new complaint management system webpage, Prime Minister Modi declared that the nation “needs to have zero tolerance for corruption in the administrative ecosystem of developed India.”
The new complaint system is expected to be a boon for the citizens to go for digital complaints; besides this, they can check the progress in a user-friendly way.
The prime minister recommended that a ranking of government agencies’ anti-corruption efforts be made and that pending cases of corrupt officials be resolved quickly.
“On mission mode, we must conclude the disciplinary actions against government employees,” he stated.
According to the prime minister, less corruption has occurred as a result of his administration’s efforts to make India “self-reliant” in a number of fields, including defence.
To further encourage probity in public life, the anti-corruption watchdog Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) is holding a vigilance awareness week from October 31 to November 6 with the theme “corruption-free India for a developed nation.”
