Kolkata, Sep 3 There is a difficulty in making one institution responsible for checking corruption in every sphere, said a member of the Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) Saturday.
We want existing institutions to be empowered and strengthened so that we can work in close association with Lokpal and Lokayukta for betterment of the society,? Vigilance Commissioner R. Sri Kumar said here at a programme organised by Bengal Chamber, Calcutta Business School and Gujarat NRE Coke.
We are formulating our reply for the Standing Committee (of parliament studying the Lokpal Bill), which we will table on Sep 7, he said.
There is a difficulty in making one institution responsible for everything. There is a need for empowerment of resources in the existing institutions. Strong Lokpal is not going to settle the issue of corruption, we should also have an ethical society for a better future,? he said.
Pointing out that corruption was there not only in the government sector but also in the private sector, Sri Kumar said: ?We should have an institution that will work towards arresting corruption in private sector.?
He said India needed more technology, accountability, transparency, mutual assistance and cooperation for building a better country.
