In a bid to control rampant corruption at government offices, the government of Nepal has made it mandatory for its staff to express a commitment against their involvement in corruption everyday, just before they begin their work.
The Office of the Prime Minister and Council of Ministers has issued a circular to all offices under the government to implement the new rule immediately, according to the OPMCM spokesperson Binod Kunwar.
A meeting led by the Chief Secretary had made a decision that all staff at any office should express their commitment against corruption everyday, Kunwar adds.
Now onwards, the staff have to promise, “I don’t get involved in corruption. I don’t let corruption happen. I am vow to work honestly for the country and its people.”
Likewise, every office has been told to mount boards with the same statement at their premises.
