Root Out Corruption: YS Jagan To Cabinet Sub-committee

YS Jagan Mohan Reddy - Sakshi Post

Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy made it clear to officials and ministers that corrupt deals indulged in by the previous TDP regime should be probed across the board. The chief minister pointed out that over five years, nature resources in the state had been indiscriminately plundered by the TDP government. At the same time, government institutions were undermined and their working watered down. Estimates of irrigation projects were hiked arbitrarily for kickbacks driving the state to the brink of bankruptcy.

YS Jagan appointed a cabinet sub-committee to probe all corrupt deals encompassing about 30 issues. The Cabinet sub-committee is being assisted by ACB, Vigilance and CID wings of the state government. The objective behind a thorough inquiry into corruption indulged in by the previous regime is to deliver transparent governance.

Chief Secretary LV Subramanyam issued orders with respect to formation of the Cabinet sub-committee which consists of finance minister Buggana Rajendranath, Panchayat Raj, Village Development and Mines Minister Peddireddy Ramachandra Reddy, Agriculture minister K Kannababu, Water Resources minister P Anil kumar Yadav, Industries and IT Minister Mekapati Goutham Reddy, among others. MPs Vijay Sai Reddy, P Mithun Reddy and Vemireddy Prabhakar Reddy would be special invitees to meetings held by the sub-committee. The special chief secretary of CCLA, Manmohan Singh has been appointed Secretary of the Cabinet Sub-Committee. The Cabinet Sub-committee would submit a report in six weeks.

Inquiries would be initiated based on suggestions given by the chief minister from time to time.

A Special team of officials from ACB, CID and Vigilance departments of the government has been formed to assist the sub-committee.
