    (IANS)

    New Delhi:The anti-corruption law in the country would be amended to fill gaps in the legislation and bring it in line with international practices, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said on Wednesday.

    Addressing the 19th Conference of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and State Anti-Corruption Bureaux in New Delhi, the prime minister said that the government was committed to doing “everything possible to ensure transparency and accountability” but the negativity and pessimism sought to be created over the issue of corruption could do no good

    “Our government stands firm in its commitment to do everything possible to ensure probity, transparency and accountability in governance,” he said.

    He warned that the mindless atmosphere of negativity and pessimism that is sought to be created over the issue of corruption can do no good.

    “Mindless atmosphere of negativity can only damage the nation’s image and hit at the morale of the executive,” he said.

    Experience had also shown that big ticket corruption is mostly related to operations by commercial entities, Manmohan Singh said.

    “Our investigation agencies need to continuously upgrade their skills and techniques to match the newer methods of corruption. The nature of the challenges that a country’s anti-corruption agencies face varies with the level of its economic development,” he said.

    Manmohan Singh said the economic reforms initiated in the early 1990s greatly reduced corrupt practices, associated with controls and the licence-permit raj.

    “Faster economic growth led to newer opportunities for corruption, ones associated with specialisation and expansion of an economy,” he added.

    I'm sure that Mr. Man Mohan Singh is pointing mindless negativity towards the Robert Vadra expose.

    What he wants to say is let the graft continue in peace.

    MMS should have overseen cleanliness in his Govt and not become a hostage to powerful personalities for his existence.

    It is a case of crying over spilt milk.

    Unfortunate and sad, but true!

    As ye sow, so shall ye reap says the Good Book!

    What happened to the list of politicians who had or (may be) still have their accounts in the Swiss banks?

    It was the UPS's government who didn't have enough balls to hand over a copy to the Supreme Court. If I am not wrong.

    It was Pranab Da who sat over the list I believe, and now he is himself rashtrapati. Sabhi ek hi thali ke chatte batte hain.
