Kathmandu, April 19: Chief of Army Staff Purna Chandra Thapa has said today that those within the institution defying the Army’s code of conduct and chain of command will be booked.
While inaugurating the Army’s code of conduct week today he added that “It is unfortunate that the Army is forced to celebrate the ‘Army Code of Conduct Week’. Corruption and other ill practices that cannot be controlled now will never be checked,”.
Recalling contribution of ancestors to this institution, he said some forces are still working to tarnish its image. The slogan for the campaign is ‘Inspiration of Army Integrity’.
Saying the Army’s policy of zero tolerance against financial irregularity within the institution will start from the headquarters, he urged the rank and file to remain aware of such trend and make the institution transparent. (RSS)
