HYDERABAD: National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Director-General Mohammad Altaf Bawany said corruption has become a culture and an accepted norm in society. Addressing students at Sindh University in Jamshoro on Friday, Bawany counted the youth among the influences which are pivotal to curbing the menace of corruption

"The edifice of society builds upon the foundation of fresh and unpolluted blood." He asked the teachers to realise their responsibility of sensitising their students with the consequences of corruption and nepotism for the society and to train the youth as a tool for eradicating such a menace.

Bawany said that with the objective of employing academia in the battle against corruption, NAB has formed character building societies in schools, colleges and universities.

NAB is working in the way the judiciary wanted the bureau to perform, he told the media.

"We don't have a political agenda. We take action after receiving and verifying complaints," he said assertively. He said that the bureau has been carrying out a successful campaign against corruption in the Hyderabad region where Rs1.3 billion of the plundered national wealth were recovered in the recent past. Bawany also encouraged the media to expose corruption.
