Why is graft taking place despite salary rise, HC questions

The High Court today asked why corruption and bribery are taking place even after the government has doubled the salary and other facilities of its officials.

Corruption must be removed from the country anyhow, the HC bench of Justice MD Nazrul Islam Talukdar and Justice KM Hafizul Alam said while hearing a suo moto rule over the legality of the government’s inaction to stop running unfit vehicles.

“The country has been made independent 48 years ago with a dream that there will be no corruption in the country and rule of law will be established in the republic. If rule of law is not established, the country will not be developed and cannot go forward,” the court said.

All the people will have to work honestly and sincerely and the country will have to be brought under the discipline, it added.

“We urge the authorities concerned to awaken their conscience in order to bring discipline in the transport management so that accidents do not take place” Justice Nazrul Islam said.

The prime minister is working hard to bring discipline in every sector of the country, the HC bench said.

All the people concerned should work with honesty and patriotism to assist the prime minister in achieving her goal, it added.
