Initiate enquiry against misuse of Govt vehicles in PHE, I&FC Department: AHM


JAMMU, July 11: State unit of Anna Hazare Anti-Corruption Movement criticised the previous PDP-BJP Government for its failure to provide transparent and corruption-free government to the people of the State.
In a statement issued here on Tuesday, Tarun Uppal, National Core Committee member of Anna Hazare Anti-Corruption Movement expressed dismay over no action being initiated against the corrupt officials for misusing the government machinery despite the complaints registered in the State Vigilance Organisation.
He said that over hundreds of State Government veh-icles are being used unauthorisedly by the government officials in the PHE, Irrigation and Flood Control Department for their personal use resulting in loss of crores of rupees to the state exchequer.
Tarun Uppal asked the State Vigilance Organisation to proceed against the complaint registered against the officials of PHE, I&FC Department for misusing the government vehicles. He mentioned that some written complaints have already sent to the Director Vigilance Org-anisation reg- arding the misuse of government vehicles but nothing has been done.
"Despite the complaints sent to the Vigilance Organisation no action has been taken against the officials for misusing the government vehicles," Uppal said, adding that the some vehicles are using by those officials who are not even entitled to have vehicles.
Tarun Uppal lambasted the previous government for its failure to create a mechanism to probe the complaints of corruption against the tainted officials.
He asserted that the government should take measures to stop corruption instead remaining dependent on anti-graft bodies.
Tarun Uppal appealed to the Governor to initiate enquiries sent by the State Vigilance Organisation to the Director Vigilance Organisation, Jammu, against the D.D.P and another one against CAO of I&FC Depar tment, Jammu, at the earliest.
