Islamabad - Corruption in all its forms has been recognised as one of the most important factors hindering the progress of the country. NAB on the directions of its Chairman Qamar Zaman Chaudhry has initiated a vigorous campaign to curb corruption by creating awareness among all segments of society particularly women and youth.

In this context, Director General Awareness and Prevention (A&P) NAB, Aliya Rashid visited Roots School, Islamabad, to involve the future generation in the fight against corruption, says a press release issued here yesterday.

She emphasized that it is important that the youth has joined NAB in its campaign on “Say No to Corruption” which is very encouraging. She urged the youth to make their parents proud of what they are and to appreciate their efforts for the family. She sensitized the audience that as “charity begins at home” similarly “accountability begins at home.” She also said that corruption is the mother of all evils and reminded words of Father of the Nation, Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah that “corruption is a poison and we must put it down with an iron hand.”

She said that the chairman NAB after assumption of his responsibilities has taken various initiatives which are now yielding dividends.

She emphasized upon the youth to focus on their education and build their character on the foundations of honesty and integrity.
