Harmony needed to curb corruption in system and society: PDP

Seeks public support to weed out the menace

Jammu Nov 17 (KNS): Stating that corruption undermines justice, mars values and merit, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) 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 as per the statement issued to KNS 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 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.
Bhat said that over the years Government strengthened various organs like Vigilance Organisation, Vigilance and 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 endeavors 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 in General and youth, in particular so that they are made the real stake holders of a value based society and a just order.
Bhat said while it is humanely impossible to throw up an ideal system where there can be no errors or omissions, he said 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.
He said that it is unfortunate that society, social organisations, political parties and dispensations are not in harmony and mostly pull in different directions even on issues of common interest, ironically lending space to negative trends and a loose system. Bhat said that it is in the interest of all that institutions are nor bereft of values and society is not allowed to be rendered shallow. Everyone has a role play. He said youth of the state is aware and educated who could be engaged in a right discourse for a competitive culture supported by a value-based system . He said educational and media institutions are and can play an effective role for an organized and purposeful activity and hoped that society lends support to save the society from plunging into disbelief and anarchy.
