Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann on Sunday said that corruption poses biggest challenge to the nation. While speaking at the golden jubilee ceremony of the Nagpur edition of the newspaper Lokmat, he said, “Corruption is the biggest challenge in front of the country and Punjab. The AAP, after coming to power, started an anti-corruption helpline to curb the menace in government offices. It is turning into a success.”

The Chief Minister said that his government has already introduced path-breaking initiatives like an anti-corruption helpline, one MLA one pension, financial assistance to farmers adopting direct sowing of paddy and others which will help in the resurgence of the state. He added that his government will take every step to restore the ‘pristine glory’ of the state in every field.

“We will give impetus to employment, sports, and industrial growth besides eradicating corruption, unemployment, drugs and pollution from Punjab to make it a frontrunner state in the country,” Mann had said. Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, Rajya Sabha MP Raghav Chadha and others were also present at the programme.
