Pokhara, October 12
Chief of the Commission for the Investigation of Abuse of Authority (CIAA) Navin Kumar Ghimire has said that there will be no political colour in the anti-corruption actions of the CIAA.
At an interaction programme organised by the Civil Society for Good Governance, Kaski on Thursday, the Chief Commissioner said that whoever indulged in corruption would be brought to book.
Saying that there was no governmental and political pressure on the CIAA, Ghimire vowed the anti-graft body’s activities would be in accordance with its jurisdiction in corruption control.
He was of the view that the trend of holding the contract of the construction bids for long and delaying the projects’ completion would be brought under the CIAA scanner.
Ghimire also shared that the national pride projects would be regularly monitored and the CIAA would continue its mission to curb corruption in such projects.
