Write a Paragraph on Corruption
Corruption means committing crime and mischief to the country. It causes a great harm to the countrymen. None can escape from the harm of corruption. It is a social malady. It spreads its greedy clutches all over the country. Today each and every government sector of the country is badly affected with it. Government officials, Clerks, secretaries even ordinary peons, security officers and so on are involved in corruption. They take bribe from the common people for giving the illegal service. The country has topped the list of corrupt countries five times. There is none to raise voice against the galloping corruption. However, there are many reasons behind this corruption and the reasons are not far to seek. The greed for power, pelf, wealth and money is the root cause of corruption. Avarice, dishonesty, nepotism and favouritism are also responsible for corruption. The result of corruption has a far-reaching effect on the socio-economic condition of our country. It once made the country a bottomless basket. It has slowed down the economy and made the country poorer. It hinders development programmers. The widespread practice of corruption should not be allowed to go unchecked. The corrupt people should be punished by enforcing the law. It should be checked, prevented and controlled at any cost. It is heartening to note that the Independent Anti Corruption Commission. set up recently, has been working seriously to check corruption.
