Expedite war against corruption in J&K: Tarigami to GovernorFile Photo

Senior CPI (M) leader and MLA Kulgam M Y Tarigami has urged the Governor’s administration to expedite the “war” against corruption in the state so that people are not deprived of their basic entitlements.     

In a statement here Tarigami said, “ Governor Satya Pal Malik’s statement that corruption and nepotism were at their peak in Jammu and Kashmir is beyond any doubt. If one goes by the statement of the Governor, this is only the tip of the ice berg. Such exposures by state administrative chief would have been sufficient enough for many big heads to roll.”

He said, “There is no doubt corruption is one of the biggest issues in our state. It has spread its tentacles very deep and is at all levels affecting all spheres of life. The magnitude of corruption prevalent in the state administration is huge and rampant. The fatal diseases of corruption, bribery, nepotism and cronyism has plagued virtually most of the institutions.” 

“While the high level corruption has invaded all spheres of public life, the common man is faced with petty corruption in their daily lives, which often deprives them of their basic entitlements like food, jobs, education and health. Due to the rampant corruption, common man has to face the harassment and indignity of paying bribes in their daily lives for getting what they are entitled to. It is the institutionalized corruption at the top which creates and sustains the petty corruption at the lower levels. The loot of public funds at the top has a direct bearing on the lives of people as they are deprived off the benefits of health, education and other basic services,” Tarigami added. 

He said that the Government recently announced the formation of Anti Corruption Bureau (ACB) to fight against the menace of corruption. “But the reality is that it is just change of nomenclature. People want action on ground as there is need for immediate treatment to get rid of corruption and nepotism,” he said, “The successive regimes in the state have weakened the institutions like Assembly, where discussions and debates on these issues would have been happening.”
