TIB corruption survey generates interest !
The TIB corruption survey came out this year as it has been doing every year for the last decade or so. This is usually a difficult, embarrassing time for the high-ups of those organisations named in the list. Sometimes listed high-ups blow hot and cold and question the bona fide of the survey. But soon it is back to normal business as usual. But not this year!
The TIB corruption survey that enjoys total public confidence (because of open knowledge and personal experience of practically everyone) has gained even more widespread publicity because of this errant behaviour by the 'aggrieved' parties concerned. So what can TIB do? Trying to explain, would be a vain attempt to inject common sense into uncommon minds.
I suggest that since the survey included 6,000 households this year, TIB motivate the members of this and past surveys to serve the cause of eradication of corruption in Bangladesh, by voluntarily going in a body to the offices concerned and expose them to whom they ( the individuals surveyed) paid (or were forced to pay) bribes. I am sure that millions of common people like us who have been exploited for so long by the corrupt will support them.
