Vakil welcomes Indo-Pak dialogue
Asks govt to eradicate corruption
Srinagar, July 29: Former Minister and AICC member, Abdul Gani Vakil today welcomed the dialogue between foreign ministers of India and Pakistan.
He said talks had been successful and it shows the seriousness of both the countries towards resolving issues through the dialogue.
Addressing public at Yarbugh and Balhama Rafiabad in district Baramulla, Vakil said Congress could not remain silent on corruption issue as this had made life of poor people miserable. “The government should leave no stone unturned in eradicating corruption so that common man gets justice,” Vakil said adding it would be the biggest achievement of present Government led by Chief Minister, Omar Abdullah.
“The government should take this issue seriously and take all the corrupt elements including minister and bureaucrats to task,” Vakil said.
He lashed out at the opposition and said instead of playing constructive role and helping the Government in eradicating corruption, they were ‘involved in mud slinging.’
Vakil urged the Chief Minister to constitute an independent commission to probe into the assets of politicians, ministers, ex-ministers and bureaucrats as SAC was not constituted yet. “Constitution of an independent commission will create fear among corrupt elements and they will restrain themselves from corrupt practices.”
Vakil expressed concern over the incomplete RTI Commission. He stressed upon the Chief Minister to appoint all members of Commission as early as possible because common man was facing problems.
