Siraha, September 21

Minister of Industry, Commerce and Supplies Matrika Yadav today stressed the need to launch a movement against corruption and to expand industries in the country.

Inaugurating AB Mall operated by Siraha Super Market Private Limited at Golbazaar, Minister Yadav reiterated that a movement should be launched against corruption and for the promotion of industries to realise the government’s goal of ‘Prosperous and happy Nepal.’

Stating that corruption was a major challenge to prosperity of the country, Yadav urged civil society and youths to launch a movement against it. “Corruption is deeply rooted in Nepali society. We need a movement to uproot it,” Yadav said.

“If you start a campaign, I shall also participate in it,” he told civil society and youths.

Stating that some media outlets had accused him of being corrupt, Yadav claimed that those allegations were unfounded.

“Some media outlets have been spreading rumour of corruption to defame me, which is not true,” he added.

Minister Yadav said the country would never be rich by relying on imports.

He emphasised on domestic production for prosperity and development of the country.
