QUETTA: Balochistan Chief Minister Mir Sarfraz Ahmed Bugti has said his government will not compromise on corruption and there will be a zero-tolerance policy.

In his introductory meeting with the officials posted at the Chief Minister Secretariat on Wednesday, he warned that those found involved in malpractices and irregularities will face the music. “Corruption will not be acceptable at any level.”

CM Bugti said good governa­nce is the top priority of his government as the issues and problems being faced by the people could be resolved through merit and good governance.

He said the CM Secretariat was the hig­hest administrative office of the province, the sanctity of which was to be protected by all officers.

He said he wanted to establish an efficient service delivery system through speedy execution of government affairs.

Mr Bugti said active, competent and dedicated officers were “our greatest pride, all levels of which would be encouraged”. However, he said the officers who are unable to play an active role should determine the route for themselves as “we have to work non-stop for the service of the people and the province, and sacrifice our peace and comfort for the welfare and convenience of the people”.
