Issue of corruption
Corruption is one of the main issues being faced by the society in Jammu and Kashmir. The J & K government in the recent past has taken a number of steps towards corruption free administration.
Recently in connection with vigilance awareness week, LG Manoj Sinha said, it’s our resolve to build corruption-free Jammu and Kashmir & no one indulging in corrupt practices will be spared.
He virtually attended the UT-level inaugural function of Vigilance Awareness Week.
Leading the crusade against corruption, he administered the integrity pledge to Administrative Secretaries, Divisional Commissioners, Deputy Commissioners, Heads of Departments, senior officers and officials to mark the beginning of the Vigilance Awareness Week across the UT of J&K.
Observing that the most powerful weapon against corruption is active citizenry, he urged all to join hands and pledge to root this menace out of the system.
He extended his greetings to the people on Rashtriya Ekta Diwas and paid tributes to Bharat Ratna Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel on his Birth Anniversary. Sardar Patel is the embodiment of those values which not only integrated India but also set a living example of honesty and integrity in public life. He always encouraged government officials to render their services without fear and favour.
Before 2019, corruption had become an accepted social norm in the UT. In the last three years, under the guidance of Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, a new transparent corruption-free system has been established in Jammu and Kashmir.
