President for multi-pronged strategy to fight corruption

By The Assam Tribune

NEW DELHI, Oct 29 � Corruption has to be rooted out by adopting a multi-pronged strategy including prompt delivery systems, transparent processes and public accountability, President Pratibha Patil said today, reports PTI.

Addressing Governors and Lt Governors at the two-day �Conference of Governors� here, the President said public sentiment against corruption in public life was on the rise as this menace stalled development and eroded rule of law.

�There is also heightened expectations among our citizens from the Indian polity. Corruption stalls development, undermines social progress, undercuts confidence in the fairness of public administration, impedes good governance, erodes the rule of law, distorts competitive conditions, dampens investments and above all hurts the common man the most.

�It has to be rooted out. The remedy lies in a multi- pronged strategy combining preventive and punitive interventions, including simpler rules, transparent processes, judicious exercise of discretion, prompt delivery systems, better public awareness, public accountability and discharge of responsibilities with utmost rectitude,� she said.

Patil also spoke about the menace of ragging in educational institutions and urged the Governors, who are also Chancellors of state universities, to play an important role to wipe it out from the system.

�I will also like to focus your attention on the inhuman conduct on the part of senior students, inflicting physical cruelty and mental torment on freshers, that have outraged society. The Ministry of Human Resource Development has endeavoured to build a credible architecture of deterrence.
