Fight against corruption must starts from top: BJP MLA
JAMMU, Mar 14: Ranbir Singh Pathania MLA from Ramnagar has welcomed the tirade of anti-corruption agencies in the state for the recent actions initiated against the corrupt but sought to know that why political people under whose noose and on whose directions these frauds were committed have been left untouched.

He said that political corruption is the fountain-head of the very evil of corruption. And any drive against corruption should start from the top. Time and again we are reminded that successful campaigns against corruption have to come from the very top. A genuine commitment from leadership is vital if bad practices are to be prevented from creeping in. Leading with moral authority is a prerequisite to attaining sustainable success in this battle.

It is therefore not unreasonable to demand that present and future leaders are assessed on, among other things, their attitudes to and achievements in combating corruption. Political corruption should be dealt as per 'Rule of Law' not only for criminal act but also breaching the trust and faith of the voters who voted such people to power.

Pathania sought a detailed probe into the construction of “Peoni-Tajoor road” where substantial amount of public exchequer has been siphoned off with barely any quality work visible on ground as reply to RTI query reveals that “The work was taken up departmentally under the instructions of then Executive Engineer and was not tendered on the instructions of the Hon’ble MLA Ramnagar, Sh Harsh Dev Singh”. He further sought a detailed probe in to the bungling committed in CDF and non-plan additionalties during the stint of former MLA Ramnagar.

He also welcomed the turnaround of certain leaders who after being thrown out of power are now preaching principles of transparency, accountability in public life. He said that such leaders while making stage - managed hullabaloo about issues of corruption, nepotism and disorders should first of all come clean and also talk about the irregularities committed during their regime with special reference to their own culpability on the matter-in-issue.
