A Mo­ment of cel­e­bra­tion....

The Pak Banker - - NATIONAL -

Cor­rup­tion is the abuse of en­trusted power for pri­vate gains. it can be clas­si­fied as grand, petty and political, de­pend­ing on the amounts of money lost whereas Trans­parency means shed­ding light on shady deals, weak en­force­ment of rules and il­licit prac­tices that un­der­mine good gov­ern­ments, eth­i­cal busi­nesses and so­ci­ety at large.

Since 1995, "Trans­parency In­ter­na­tional" has been re­leas­ing Cor­rup­tion Per­cep­tion In­dex of the coun­tries that it sur­veys. It is a mo­ment of im­mense plea­sure for all the Pak­ista­nis that Pak­istan has jumped from 50th po­si­tion to 53rd on Ber­lin-based Trans­parency In­ter­na­tional's Cor­rup­tion Per­cep­tion In­dex, 2015. Ac­cord­ing to which PAK­ISTAN fares bet­ter than all SAARC states namely In­dia, Sri Lanka, Nepal and Bangladesh, Pak­istan is the coun­try that im­proved its CPI score whereas the rest ei­ther scored the same or scored less. Never in the his­tory of the coun­try, Pak­istan scored that well. it is the re­sult of zero tol­er­ance for cor­rup­tion.

In Trans­parency In­ter­na­tional's CPI 2015, Pak­istan is a re­flec­tion of trans­parency and com­pli­ance with the rules and reg­u­la­tions in the CPEC and other mega projects that has been im­ple­mented by the PML (N) govern­ment.

The im­proved rank­ing is also a slap on the faces of those who are in the habit of mak­ing false ac­cu­sa­tions. CPI 2015 has proved them all wrong. By the grace of God and firm lead­er­ship of PML (N), Pak­istan is proud of this im­prove­ment and in­tends to con­tinue it in the fu­ture as well. The jour­ney to­wards pros­per­ity has just be­gun in the right di­rec­tion. Lead­er­ship is com­mit­ted to erad­i­cate the men­ace like cor­rup­tion. To­day is the happy day in the land of pure and I hope to wit­ness more days like to­day in the fu­ture as well.
