No corrupt element will go unpunished: ACC Commissioner


RAJSHAHI, Sept 26, 2017 (BSS) – Commissioner of Anti Corruption Commission (ACC) Dr Nasir Uddin Ahmed has expressed a strong note of warning that no corrupt element will go unpunished.

“It’s high time to ensure all public services corruption-free. We can’t keep an uneven path of corruption for our future generation. We want to establish a country free from corruption,” he reiterated.

ACC Commissioner urged all to raise their voice against corruption unitedly to fight the long persisting social menace effectively.

He was addressing an anti-corruption view-sharing meeting with divisional and district level government officials, civil society people, corruption prevention committee members and media personalities at the conference hall of Deputy Commissioner in Rajshahi as chief guest yesterday.

Additional Divisional Commissioner of Rajshahi Aminul Islam, Commissioner of Rajshahi Metropolitan Police Mahabubor Rahman and Superintendent of Police Muazzem Hossain Bhuiyan also addressed the meeting with Deputy Commissioner Helal Mahmud Sharif in the chair.

ACC Commissioner Dr Nasir said: “No graft suspect will be spared. All suspects will be brought to justice. So, there’s nothing for the corrupt elements to be happy.” He said corruption is visible in every section of the society.

He mentioned that corruption undermines economic development and increase poverty, exploitation and injustice, prevent good governance, accountability and transparency and create social and political instability and insecurity.

He added institutional corruptions have to be checked first before taking lawful action against a person who is involved in corruption willingly or unwillingly.

Dr Nasir Uddin also said though elimination of corruption is a very difficult task, still, we have to work together to reduce corruption.

He laid importance on creation of awareness among the mass people, especially the young generation, to eliminate corruption from the society. Concerted effort is crucially important to check bribery as it is impossible for the ACC alone to fight corruption.
