While corruption is the raison dêtre for most bureaucrats and politicians in India, it may sound strange to many when ministers and government employees pledge to weed out corruption.
Today, India’s Minister of Urban Development and Housing & Urban Poverty Alleviation, M. Venkaiah Naidu, administered pledge to the officials and employees of the two urban ministries, seeking to strive for eradication of corruption.
The pledge, according to a government statement, taken on the occasion of the beginning of Vigilance Week commits employees to continuously strive to work to bring about integrity and transparency in all spheres of activities.
Naidu also administered the ‘Ekta Pledge’ to the officials and employees of both the ministries on the occasion of Sardar Patel Jayanti being celebrated as ‘Ekta Diwas’ across the country.
The pledge required everyone to dedicate to preserve the unity, integrity and security of the nation in the spirit of unification of the country made possible by the vision and actions of freedom fighter Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel.
