Previous government lacked will to fight corruption, says PM Modi

NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday said his government, after hard work in the last six-seven years, has established faith among people that it is possible to fight corruption and that they would receive benefits of various government schemes without involving middlemen.

He was virtually addressing a joint conference of the Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) and the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) at Kevadia in Gujarat.

Modi claimed the previous government did not have the will to fight corruption. “Today there is a political will to come down heavily on corruption, continuous improvement also being made to the administrative level.”

“Corruption, big or small, takes away the rights of common people. It is a hindrance in the progress of the country and effects our collective energy,” the Prime Minister said.

PM Modi also mentioned that there should be no safe havens anywhere in the world for those who are committing crime against the country and its people.
