Corruption would imperil country if not curbed: Speaker Sapkota


KATHMANDU – Speaker of the House of Representatives (HoR) Agni Prasad Sapkota has called for collective resolution to curb the continuously increasing corruption in the country, warning that it would imperil country if not controlled.

Inaugurating a cartoon exhibition themed ‘Nisana’ (Target) here today, Speaker Sapkota said that the exhibition’s cartoons sketched on anti-corruption theme had heartily inspired him to fight against corruption.

Sapkota also pledged to fight against corruption as much as he could. “A cartoon is not a mere sketch drawn by pen. It is drawn by heart to portray and reflect the society. I express my solidarity by supporting the campaign,” he said.

The Speaker opined that corruption was not only about misappropriation of the budget as, he argued, it was also a matter linked with nationality. “If we don’t curb corruption, it will eventually jeopardize our country.”

The cartoon exhibition is organized by the Cartoonists’ Club of Nepal (CCN) and features 50 cartoons by 36 cartoonists. It will run for three days at the Nepal Art Council. The exhibition aims to generate awareness against corruption, said president of CCN, Basu Khsitiz.
