No action on ground, Amit Shah only speaks against corruption!
People recall Modi's mantra, seek probe

Early Times Report

Jammu, June 24: Even as the Bharatiya Janta Party supremo Amit Shah openly accused the previous Mufti government of resorting to corruption and hindering development works, what is preventing the central government from ordering a high level probe into the allegations of large-scale corruption and favoritism.
While the BJP strongman during his address in the winter capital of Jammu on June 23 was critical of the previous government where his party was in alliance, why not to expose the muck and punish the guilty?
Such questions have started doing round in the public and political circles in the state, presently under the Governor's rule, which is widely appreciated by the people as good governance.
The people say it was high time for New Delhi to order probe into irregularities. "All the resources which New Delhi sanctioned for the state were swindled by the ruling politicians that time. There were even large scale irregularities in government recruitments as mainly the influential were absorbed in the government jobs. So why not to order a probe?" said a retired government official from Jammu district.
Observers believe that the corruption and favoritism became the main cause of furthered alienation, mainly in Kashmir. "In justice with the deserving youth became a main cause of alienation something that morphed into anti-government sentiment," said a political analyst.
Observers believe that apart from registration of cases against the politicians who are already facing public scrutiny, there was a need book the "coterie of corrupt officials who behaved Yes Minister to their political bosses only to grab their share in the plunder of public resources."
"Let there be a transparent and time bound probe so that things become clear once for all and those who looted the resources face exemplary punishment, so that it serves as deterrent for future " said a senior official.
Ironically, Early Times was victimized by the previous government mainly for reporting against corruption and favoritism, which was festering with each passing day.
The newspaper, which aspires to be the voice of the people of the state in general and Jammu and particular was deprived of its share of the government advertisements, something which some officials in the Information Department continue to uphold "to please their political bosses."
Amid public outcry against corruption and favoritism, why shouldn't Amit Shah convince the central government to order a probe.
After all the Prime Minister is famous for his iconic slogan "Na Khawunga, Na Khane Dunga." Let the Modi mantra prevail in Jammu and Kashmir, at least in war against corruption!
