Director General (Operations) of National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Zahir Shah has said that each individual will have to pass through process of self-accountability to curb corruption in every sphere of life. He was addressing a seminar titled ‘Corruption Curbs Economic Growth’ jointly held by the National Highway Authority (NHA) and NAB at NHA Headquarters to commemorate the International Anti-Corruption Day. “Pakistan is bestowed with abundance of resources. Misuse of these resources, bribery and such practices as well are major hindrances in way of making Pakistan Corruption Free State,” he said, and termed increasing population one of major causes of slow economic growth.He recalled endeavours being undertaken by the NAB for termination of corruption through awareness campaigns and enforcement of relevant laws. Commending the construction work of roads and their maintenance activity by NHA, he said heavy amounts are required for this purpose. He said the need is to collect toll tax honestly so that maximum revenue could be collected. He said joint efforts are needed to achieve a corruption-free Pakistan. Earlier, NHA’s Member Administration Capt (r) Mushtaq Ahmed appreciated the endeavours taken by NAB to curb corrupt practices in the society.The seminar concluded with exchange of souvenirs from both the sides.
