KATHMANDU: Despite serving the top position of the Commission for Investigation of Abuse of Authority (CIAA), an anti-graft watchdog amid protests from different quarter, Lokman Singh Karki has been working to enhance the effectiveness of the anti-graft watchdog.
At a time when the bureaucrats have been paying very less attention to the grievances of the public taking advantage of the transitional period of the country, Chief of CIAA Karki directed the government secretaries to take necessary decisions to address public grievances or face action.
“If there is any delay in carrying out the decision, you will be held responsible. But if any decision is pending for good intent, my office will assist you,” a secretary quoted Karki as telling the secretaries, including the chief secretary, who attended the meeting at Karki’s chamber.
It was Karki’s first comprehensive meeting with the top bureaucrats after assuming office on May 8.The CIAA, after Karki took its helm, has started circulating notices to the ministers, those with direct public contact in particular, asking them to check corruption.
CIAA has also formed a committee headed by CIAA Commissioner Keshav Baral to monitor the functioning and activities of government ministries. The CIAA said the monitoring committee will start its work immediately.
Karki directed the secretaries to immediately end the tendency of creating hindrances in development projects and not properly coordinating among the ministries and government agencies concerned. After being appointed CIAA chief on May 8, Karki has been regularly convening similar meetings of top government officials and instructing them to ensure prompt and effective service delivery.
Chief Secretary Leela Mani Poudel said the government agencies will follow the directives from—and decisions taken by—the CIAA, adding that the government would assist the CIAA in curbing corruption and promoting good governance.
