The Vigilance Awareness Week on South Central Railway (SCR) commenced with a seminar on the theme of “Public Participation in Promoting Integrity and Eradicating Corruption” on Monday. Justice L Narasimha Reddy, former Chief Justice, Patna High Court delivered the keynote address at a programme held at Rail Nilayam Auditorium, Secunderabad. Ravindra Gupta, General Manager, SCR was also present.
Justice Reddy expressed acknowledged the relevance of current year’s theme to the present society. While equating corruption to a disease and integrity to that of health, he stressed the need of public participation in promoting the integrity of the non-corrupt.
Reasoning out that nobody is born to be corrupt, he said that the traditional system of education, which used to teach values and imbibe character in a child, is required to eliminate corruption because of the reason that corruption is increasingly found to be among the educated.
While stating that technology has brought down corruption, he reminded the audience that the same cannot be solely depended upon and requires individual commitment from the employees of the organisation to dedicate themselves to bring down corruption to zero level.
Later, Justice Reddy released a ‘Vigilance Bulletin 2016’ and ‘Sachetan’ a quarterly magazine published by Vigilance Department, SCR.
