Lucknow: Good governance is intrinsically linked with probity and transparency in the functioning of the government, Uttar Pradesh Governor B L Joshi said on Saturday.

"There is a need that every government functionary maintains professional competence, honesty and integrity...We need well defined ways and means to check those who vitiate the very culture of integrity and honesty," Joshi said.

The Governor was addressing a symposium 'CBI and Good Governance: Challenges and Prospects' organised here to mark the CBI Day.

"A clean and transparent government needs an effective and professional anti-corruption organisation," he said.

"The intense debates on the Lokpal issue show that there is visible turmoil in the society. No right thinking man wants taxpayers' money to be misappropriated," he said.

Speaking on the occasion, Justice Pradeep Kant, said, "Public has a great expectations from the CBI. It should be a force with full independence."

Former CBI director Trinath Mishra stressed on good governance and efficient vigilance body.

"Development needs corruption-free environment. Lokayukta system and RTI are of great help in good governance," he said.
