Asking CBI and state anti-corruption officials to aggressively pursue “high-level corruption”, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said the perception that “big fish” escape punishment must change and they should act swiftly and without fear. Opening a conference of CBI and state anti-corruption bureaus here, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said there was no single remedy for fighting corruption that has to be combated at many levels, one of which was making existing systems less discretionary. He said that the high-level corruption should be pursued aggressively. The prime minister said while quick investigation was important and necessary, it was not sufficient to bring the guilty to book. He said that trials should be conducted expeditiously and judgments delivered quickly. To begin with, the aim should be to conclude the trial in two years so that punishment could be given to the offenders within a period of three years or so,” he said.
