The premierâ€™s messages comes as the International Anti-Corruption Day is being observed today. He regretted that the previous government put political opponents behind the bars on the basis of frivolous corruption allegations.
Terming corruption as a major national issue, PM Shehbaz said instead of merely using it for political sloganeering and point-scoring, serious efforts should be made to weed out it.
He said corruption was a major impediment to Pakistanâ€™s progress, adding that it caused instability and destruction of the administrative structure.
The prime minister urged all political circles to prepare a clear roadmap to get rid of corruption. He said in light of Islamic principles, efforts should be made for strengthening the institutions to do away with the scourge.
