RNS: Corruption has been deeply rooted in our system and existed for past long. We can control corruption only by introspection and rectifying the mistakes, said Praveen Kumar, former Inspector General of Police.
He was addressing a seminar— “Corruption Free India, Developed India” organized at the Officer’s Club, Chandrapura Thermal Power Plant (CTPS) as chief guest. The seminar was organized under Vigilance Awareness Week by the Vigilance Department of CTPS- a unit of Damodar Valley Corporation (DVC).
He further added, “By increasing transparency in the work, we only be able to eliminate corruption from our society. We must not misuse our power at any cost. Violation of fundamental rights also comes under the category of corruption.”
It has been noticed that people prefer to settle situations fast while doing their work, which encourages corruption and this is the reason why corruption has not yet been eradicated, he said.
Speaking on the occasion, Chief Engineer and Project Head Ajay Kumar Dutta said, the desire to become wealthy fast pushes people to do the wrong things. If the correct decision is not made, the family, society, and country suffer.
Sunil Kumar Pandey, Chief Engineer Operations, stated that excessive ambition destroys moral judgement. Because of this, we must be content with the resources we have for the sake of society and the country.
Anil Kumar Singh, Manager, presided over the occasion, which was attended by Deputy General Manager Administration TT Das, Deputy Chief Engineer SK Sharma, PC Sahu, KK Singh, LP Gupta, Superintending Engineer Dilip Kumar, Sanjay Kumar, Deepak Kumar, Prakash Kumar, and others.
The programme was inaugurated with the lighting of a lamp by the Chief Guest. Dutta welcomed the chief guest and presented a sapling.
The programme concluded with the national anthem.
