By Our Staff Reporter
GUWAHATI, Nov 2: A semir titled ‘Public participation in promoting integrity and eradication of corruption’ was held at Panbazar on Wednesday as a part of Vigilance Awareness Week from October 31 to Nov 1.
DGP (law and order) Kuladhar Saikia graced the occasion as the Chief Guest and spoke to the audience about the eradication of corruption from the grassroot level.
“Corruption can be taught to the students in schools by including corruption related topics in the syllabus. Students will grow accustomed to corruption and would try to prevent and shy away from it in later stages of their life. Books should also contain gender sensitivity related contents. Anti- corruption issues were raised earlier but effective measures against it has not been taken yet,” Saikia said.
“Banking sector should be free from corruption. Banking officials cannot effort to be corrupt because ultimately people’s hopes are infested upon the bank and in turn, upon the officials. Parents play an important role in teaching children about corruption. If the needs don’t exceed income, corruption can be prevented. The young ones are the future of this country and it is a responsibility to keep a watch,” United Bank of India (UBI) DGM (Northeast network and business development) Shio Sankar Singh said.
President Prab Mukherjee, Prime Minister rendra Modi and Union Home minister Rajth Singh gave their messages showering warm wishes on Vigilance Awareness week.
