Book culprits who tried to bribe Governor SP Malik: Harsh Dev

Early Times Report

Jammu, Oct 21: Referring to the most sensational disclosures made by the J&K Ex Governor Sh. SP Malik regarding the bribe offer of 300 crore made to him during his gubernatorial assignment in the state, by certain high profile people, the JKNPP chairman and ex education minister Mr Harsh Dev Singh today questioned the BJP govt over its cold criminal silence in the matter. He said that the startling revelation having been made by none other than the constitutional head of the then state, it was shocking that no action had been even initiated against the corrupt mafia operational in the system.
It is strange that the business tycoons and political syndicates who had attempted to bribe the Governor have been allowed to go scot free despite having been identified and categorically named by the Governor in public as well as in media, rued Mr Singh. Further the fate of the files for which Rs 150 crore each was offered to the then governor should be made known to the public as Mr SP Malik had been relieved from J&K shortly thereafter, asserted the NPP chairman. Whether it is a fact that the said files were subsequently cleared by the successors of Mr SP Malik questioned Singh adding that the matter needed to be brought in public domain.
Seeking action against the commercial and political syndicates who tried to bribe the constitutional head of the state, Mr Singh said that Mr SP Malik had made certain other revelations about corruption in the past which too were disregarded by the govt for reasons best known. He had revealed that the cost of a power project was sought to be enhanced by 10% and kickbacks accounting to 100 crore were offered for the same. He had further pointed towards the financial scams of the grave nature besides thousands of backdoor appointments having been made in J&K bank and other departments during BJP-PDP govt with hardly any action taken against the beneficians of the said frauds.
Asserting that the corruption had been legalized in J&K especially under BJP-PDP rule, Mr Singh said that even the reports of CAG revealing scams of thousands of crores between 2015 and 2018 were consigned to the dustbin only to protect the powerful politicians and a few bureaucrats. Pointing towards the successive reports of CAG revealing financial irregularities in the working of various govt Deptts going unaddressed, Harsh Dev divulged that the recently released CAG report for 2018-19 had pointed towards a suspected seem of Rs. 8,000 crore likely to have been committed during 2017 and 2018. The CAG report has categorically castigated Education Deptt, Municipal Corporations of Jammu and Srinagar and SKUAST for the financial irregularities, which regretfully had failed to invite due attention of the powers that be, bemoaned Singh.
Likewise, said Singh, the CAG report of 2017-18 had revealed “fudging of more than 10,000 crore in receipts and expenditure under the minor head 8,00”. And despite the unambiguous statement of fudging coming from the then CAG Rajiv Mehrishi, the govt had failed to act in view of BP being a partner in the then govt.
Similarly the BJP continued to charge NC, PDP and other opposition parties during DDC elections for Roshini scam but when its own leaders were found involved in the said scam, they chose to go into hibernation.
