There’s No Curbing Corruption Without Accountability

The government is reportedly considering a host of measures to prevent fund wastage in public projects.

Public projects in Bangladesh are routinely plagued by corruption and irregularities that invariably shoot up costs, such as inflated bills, budget overruns caused by delays, post-project repairs hastened by low-quality work, etc. If all such drains on public funds can be checked properly, public undertakings would be a lot less expensive.
