Minister for Communications and Information Technology, Rekha Sharma, has said all government bodies as well as general people have a significant role in maintaining good governance in the country.

During a discussion on the bill designed to amend the Commission for the Investigation of Abuse of Authority Act-2048 at the State Affairs and Good Governance Committee of the parliament on Wednesday, Minister Sharma expressed the view that making the implementation of anti-corruption laws effective was the main agenda of the hour.

She pointed out that proper implementation and compliances of laws should be a matter of concern for all in the context of corruption control. "The main issue is the type of organization and how to hold the government to account", mentioned the Minister.

Similarly, Minister for Federal Affairs and General Administration, Anita Devi, stressed that political leaders of the parties represented in the leadership of the local level should take effective steps to stop irregularities there. She further shared that the CIAA was effective in the past but people are not happy after it remained ineffective in recent periods.

Likewise, CIAA Chief Commissioner Prem Kumar Rai suggested that the trend of making decisions from the cabinet in the name of policy-level decisions should be stopped.

The proposal of making such a decision should not be tabled and the Chief Secretary should return such proposals, he stressed.

Stating that it was necessary to bring laws to prosecute those not exercising the rights given by laws on the basis of a 'time card', Rai expressed commitment that the CIAA would refine the dimension of investigation and prosecution in corruption cases.
