Early Times Report

JAMMU, Aug 29: Making a vociferous appeal to the Governor to constitute a Commission of Inquiry (COI) against the corrupt MLAs and Ministers who have accumulated huge wealth and disproportionate assets in the last three and a half years, Harsh Dev Singh Chairman JKNPP and former Minister lambasted the erstwhile State govt for having grossly failed to take action against the blemished politicians who had looted public exchequer, encroached State lands and others.
Addressing media persons, he described the PM Modi's tall slogan of providing transparent, accountable and corruption free governance to the people as hoax. He said that all such rants were made to enchant the masses for political gains. He said that several ex- BJP Ministers and a sitting BJP MP had been reported of late to have created huge assets, taken loan from J&K Bank amounting to Rs. 30 crores and got it declared NPA besides defied norms and procedures and violated the defence acts besides violations in constructing un-authorized structures and palatial bunglows. He said that even during demonetization a Minister's vehicle was widely reported to have been apprehended while carrying huge 'dirty cash' for conversion into new currency notes.
"Similarly another Minister's spouse was reported to have been video-graphed while converting black money into gold. Another Minister accused of having taken several crores as bribe from his colleague MLC for granting permission for construction of private apartments in an environmentally fragile area of Jammu", Harsh divulged.
Revealing further, he also said that several BJP Ministers were accused of promoting transfer industry in the state, allotment of works without tenders and back door appointments made in govt departments on monetary and extraneous considerations. Moreover, several Ministers and MLAs had encroached huge state lands, and Forest lands and Custodian lands whose adverse reports had been submitted even by the investigating agencies against them, Harsh disclosed. He said a BJP MLA rose from rags to riches within no time who had been accused of raising two palatial bungalows after elections besides raising huge moveable and immoveable assets in Jammu city and its vicinity which were disproportionate to his known sources of income. He further disclosed that state land measuring 22 kanals and 15 marlas was found to be in his illegal possession and his family besides having involved in swindling subsidies from Agriculture and Horticulture departments which were supposed to be meant for the poor and the BPL families. "Several unemployed youth and employees have claimed to be duped and looted by the MLA in the name of employment besides extortions from employees in the name of transfers", Harsh maintained.
Urging the Governor to constitute a commission of inquiry to probe into the involvement of MLAs and Ex-Ministers of erstwhile unethical alliance in corrupt deeds, large scale bungling and other acts of omission and commission, Singh said that until noose was tightened around corrupt politicians good and clean governance could not be delivered to the public.
