SAC has become defunct: Congress
Sangrama, July 1: Former minister and Member AICC Abdul Gani Vakil today expressed concern over functioning of State Accountabilty Commission and favoured setting up of independent commission to probe corruption charges against bureaucrats and politicians.
“Investigating institutions like State Accountability Commission have become defunct. It would be better if the Government would constitute an independent commission to probe into the corruption charges of politicians and bureaucrats,” Vakil said addressing a youth rally here.
He urged the Chief Minister to look into the financial mess in various departments which is hampering the development of our State.
The former Minister said that due to red tapism in the administration image of the coalition government is getting eroded among common masses.
He said that Congress was against corruption and it was towards this end that Prime Minister Manmohan Singh had assured a strong Lokpal.
In a statement, Vakil expressed concern and said that “whose cases were pending in SAC have got stays from the Court by which Investigating institutions like State Accountability Commission have become defunct”.
