Take notice of adverse reports, irregularities: Vakil to Omar
Jammu, Apr 21: Senior Congress leader Abdul Gani Vakil on Saturday urged the Chief Minister, Omar Abdullah, to take notice of adverse reports and irregularities against different departments regularly appearing in newspapers.
“There is a need of taking notice of such adverse reports for the reason if they get unnoticed, the credibility of the coalition government will get eroded,” Vakil said whiel addressing a gathering here.
The former minister demanded setting up of an independent commission to probe into the disproportionate assets of ministers, ex ministers, legislators and other public servants across the board. “Investigating institutions like State Accountability Commission have become defunct due to the stay got by most of the politicians and bureaucrats from the High Court,” he added.
“Congress can’t be silent on corruption as it is the dream of Sonia Gandhi to see JK peaceful and corruption free state,” he added.
He said corruption had made life of poor people miserable and government should leave no stone unturned to eradicate this menace. “If the government succeeds in eradicating corruption it will be the biggest achievement of the present government headed by Omar Abdullah,” he added.
Vakil applauded the role of AICC President Sonia Gandhi and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in launching a crusade against corruption and said, “Congress did not even spare its own people. Leaders like former Maharashtra Chief Minister Ashok Chavan and senior Congress leader Suresh Kalmadi had to face the axe although only allegations of irregularities were leveled against them.”
He lambasted opposition for not playing a constructive role. “Power hungry opposition is trying to exploit common masses by raising sentimental issues,” he said.
