JAMMU:Expressing anguish that government has completely failed in tackling corruption former Minister Abdul Gani Vakil on Wednesday in a statement said that no action has been taken against those involved in corruption cases leave alone controlling menace of corruption which is on rise and has made life of poor populace difficult to live.
Corruption menace has taken toll to a greater extent and has only weakened the economy of the states besides increased alienation amongst masses to a considerable extent hence corruption needs to be tackled with iron hand.
Vakil said that if the State Government headed by Mehbooba Mufti has done anything regarding eradication of corruption that is punishing class IV employees where as big sharks are roaming scot free. He appealed to Chief Minister to come out with a clear policy against corruption and must activate their prosecutors to act against the wrongdoers and culprits who deserve to be brought to book at any cost.
Vakil also said that there are dozens of cases against politicians and bureaucrats in State Accountability Commission and other anti graft institutions which have been stayed without further proceedings.
He said government must get the stays vacated and start proceedings in the cases with the help of government advocates to prove its intentions.
Vakil stressed upon the State Government if they mean to eradicate corruption then they must strengthen anti graft institutions especially SAC with all requirements which till today government has failed to address.
Corruption and unemployment are the main factors adding in alienation of the people especially among youth from the mainstream and should be tackled seriously otherwise peace and stability in the State will remain a distant dream. Tackling the problem with seriousness will definitely help in restoration of peace and stability in the State, Vakil added.
