Business Live: The country is completely overwhelmed by corruption, said Finance Minister AMA Muhith.
“Corruption is there in our blood because everyone engages in some form of it,” the minister said.
He was addressing the inaugural session of the Anti-Corruption Commission’s (ACC) hotline service at its head office in Dhaka.
“There was no corruption culture in Bangladesh in the past. Once it used to take place in secret because it was a matter of shame. But, now it happens openly.”
“Modern technologies must be used efficiently to curb corruption as technologies create many scopes to prevent the social menace,” he said, offering a solution.
Muhith previously inaugurated the ACC’s hotline by making a phone call to the ACC’s Complaint Centre dialling: 106.
ACC Chairman Iqbal Mahmud at the event said people can directly lodge allegation with the anti-graft body through the hotline.
