Cor­rup­tion in Pak­istan

Pakistan Observer - - OPINION - AQSA AMIN ANJUM

Cor­rup­tion is author­ity plus monopoly mi­nus trans­parency. Pak­istan is fac­ing many prob­lems due to cor­rup­tion. Pak­istan is the 117th least cor­rupt na­tion out of 175 coun­tries ac­cord­ing to 2015 Cor­rup­tion Per­cep­tion In­dex re­ported by Trans­parency In­ter­na­tional.

The ma­jor rea­son of cor­rup­tion is un­em­ploy­ment and lack of ac­count­abil­ity. I think if in­sti­tu­tions be­come strong, salaries of peo­ple are in­creased and im­me­di­ately paid, ed­u­ca­tion sys­tem is im­proved, law and or­der is main­tained and jus­tice is pro­vided to the peo­ple then the rate of cor­rup­tion shall au­to­mat­i­cally de­crease. I just want to re­quest gov­ern­ment to fol­low this sug­ges­tion so that our coun­try gets free from cor­rup­tion. — Via email
