ISLAMABAD—Cor­rup­tion is the big­gest con­straint in coun­try’s de­vel­op­ment which must be dealt with an iron hand, stu­dents to be complacent and do not de­mand of ex­pen­sive things from their par­ents.

The DG NAB, while terming cor­rup­tion as a men­ace to so­ci­ety’s progress fur­thered ladies in Univer­si­ties and Col­leges who are go­ing to be fu­ture moth­ers of our chil­dren.

Aliya Rashid’s new con­cept in­volves women, youth and chil­dren in which she ex­plained how there is a ten­dency for family mem­bers to un­in­ten­tion­ally cre­ate pres­sures for the family bread win­ners through their de­mands for items that be­come part of de­vel­op­ing a lux­u­ri­ous life style. She said that ev­ery Pak­istani re­al­izes that cor­rup­tion is the mother of all our ills. It has given birth to nepo­tism and fa­voritism, and has negated mer­i­toc­racy, trans­parency and ac­count­abil­ity. The lec­ture was also ad­dressed by Dean Fac­ulty of So­cial Sci­ences Dr. Nabi Bux Jum­mani who called for united ef­forts to up­root the men­ace of cor­rup­tion. He said univer­si­ties can play vi­tal role in curb­ing the prob­lem of cor­rup­tion, adding that IIUI would be found al­ways avail­able in this re­gard. Ear­lier, Prof. Dr Sam­ina Ma­lik, Direc­tor Fe­male Cam­pus, IIUI, thanked DG NAB while terming her lec­ture as in­spi­ra­tional.

She said that the aware­ness ses­sion has made ev­ery­one think as to how we all can play a con­struc­tive role in in­hibit­ing this so­cial dis­ease from ad­vanc­ing fur­ther. In the end, the stu­dents vowed en­thu­si­as­ti­cally say­ing, ‘say no to cor­rup­tion’ and pledged to help build a cor­rup­tion free Pak­istan.
