JAMMU, Sept 11: In a proactive stride toward promoting transparency and efficiency, the Department of Political Science, in collaboration with the Department of Physical Education, organized a seminar focusing on "Brashtachar Mukt Jammu and Kashmir" under the able guidance of the college's Principal, Dr. Meeru Abrol.
Corruption, an age-old societal scourge, continues to undermine our nation's economic foundation since India's independence. Establishing a corruption-free Jammu and Kashmir Union Territory (JK UT) is a challenging yet not insurmountable task. The first step is to identify the gaps and weaknesses in our administration, scrutinize their root causes, and then implement stringent checks and measures at every level.
This seminar represents a significant stride toward promoting transparency, integrity, ethics, and accountability. Corruption remains a persistent global challenge, hindering economic development, eroding trust in institutions, and disproportionately affecting vulnerable segments of the population. Recognizing the urgency of addressing this issue, the college organized this event to underscore the importance of collective action in the fight against corruption.
During the seminar, participants including Nupur Sharma, Sanu Devi, Neyakshi Parihar, Arpita Jamwal, and Anjali Devi actively engaged in discussions and presented their perspectives on the topic of "Brashtachar Mukt UT of JK." The participants were recognized for their contributions with appreciation certificates.
More than 100 students attended the seminar, sharing their experiences and reaffirming their commitment to ethical conduct, accountability, and anti-corruption measures.
Speaking on the occasion, Principal of the college, Prof. Meeru Abrol, emphasized, "We cannot relinquish our dream of a corruption-free Jammu and Kashmir. We must work tirelessly to make our UT a better place to live. The significant responsibility of liberating Jammu and Kashmir from all its social vices rests on the shoulders of our youth, who are the torchbearers of our UT. If our youth are instilled with good values and encouraged to pursue holistic personal growth, we can undoubtedly elevate our nation's progress significantly."
The program concluded with a formal vote of thanks delivered by Dr. Vandana Sharma from the Department of Political Science.
This seminar signifies a step in the right direction, where collective efforts and the commitment of the youth are vital in the ongoing battle against corruption, ultimately aiming for a brighter and more transparent future for Jammu and Kashmir.
