‘Shunt corrupt ministers’

Vakil Urges CM To Ensure Accountability In System


Jammu, Jan 2: Former minister and Congress leader Abdul Gani Vakil Wednesday urged the Hurriyat leaders to come forward for talks with New Delhi “like the way they talked to Pakistan.”
“They must come forward and hold a dialogue with Centre to defeat evil designs of those trying to deprive people of development and prosperity for their vested interests,” Vakil said in a statement. “The gap created thus enables such forces to mislead people as well as Centre for their own benefits and loot the state exchequer and the money meant for people.”
He said a dialogue by Hurriyat with Centre “could keep such forces at a bay and help people make their voices heard.”
Vakil, according to the statement, was addressing a meeting of party workers at Gandhi Nagar. Vakil stressed upon the coalition government to fulfill commitments made with the people of Jammu and Kashmir and strengthen all democratic institutions by de-centralizing powers. “When the elections of upper house stands completed, time has now come to translate words into actions and empower Panchayats by incorporating 73rd amendment and also holding elections to BDCs,” he said.
Vakil expressed concern over “rampant corruption at higher level” as, according to him, most of the ministers are facing trials in either courts or the State Accountability Commission (SAC). “If this trend persists, people will lose faith in the system,” he said, urging Chief Minister to “shunt the corrupt out to have a clean and credible government.”
