Harmony needed to curb corruption in system: Bhat

Excelsior Correspondent
SRINAGAR, Nov 16: Stating that corruption undermines justice, mars values and   merit, People’s Democratic Party general secretary, Nizamuddin Bhat has sought public support through committed campaign to weed out the menace from society and the system.
Interacting with party workers, Bhat said  it is because of the  corruption that social ethos built on morality and ethics is coming under stress  and institutions established for public service do not yield desired results. He said PDP should seek public support enabling Government to establish a judicious system and  ensure harmonious growth and  development  commensurate to resources used and efforts put in.
Bhat  said  Jammu and Kashmir State has tremendously suffered due to unending menace  of corruption and evil of disharmony  despite Government’s resolve to free the system and institutions from any corrupt practices and unjust handling.  He said that the deep rooted disease is  now  shaking  the faith of upcoming generation in the public institutions which can wreak havoc to system and society, if not addressed in right earnest.
PDP leader said that over the years Government strengthened various organs like Vigilance Organisation, Accountability Commissions, besides an empowered judiciary and Grievance Redressal Cells with an avowed objective to  ensure justice and fair play  in public dealings.  It has launched  sustained campaign  for building a workably honest system.  Fortunately, all has  not gone awry  and the hope sustains.  In addition to Government efforts, the  honest people in every sphere in  society are on their own  engaged in tireless endeavours to  orient  for an honest and upright system.  However , public perception  still continues to be of cynicism. This warrants  an added effort on the part of Government  in the direction of   instilling  faith and confidence among masses.
Bhat said while it is humanely impossible to throw up an ideal system where there can be no errors or omissions, it is practicable that system functions without duress, fear or favour and that the institutions of public service maintain obvious standards of honesty and probity. He said society as a whole needs to rise to the occasion and contribute towards this pious goal.
