Ending corruption ‘collective responsibility of State tiers & society’: Alvi


President Dr Arif Alvi on Thursday, terming corruption an impediment to the country’s growth, said it was the collective responsibility of all tiers of the State and society to ensure its eradication.
“Strict laws, effective prosecution, and prompt dispensation of justice besides societal pressure are the important factors in checking corruption,” he said in his address at the seminar on ‘Corruption Free Pakistan: Pride of Nation’, held here at the Aiwan-e-Sadr.
The event organized by National Accountability Bureau (NAB) was held in connection with the International Anti-Corruption Day aimed at creating awareness among the masses to fight corruption in society.
