Govt fails to root out corruption despite tall claims: Vakil

Excelsior Correspondent
SRINAGAR, July 5: People’s Conference senior vice president and former Minister, Abdul Gani Vakil today said that despite tall claims the Governor administration had failed to root out corruption in the State.
Vakil said that Malik had assured action against those bigwigs, who are involved in the corruption and have accumulated huge illegal wealth.
“Much is being discussed about rooting-out of corrupt in the State; however, nothing is happening on the ground level,” the senior PC leader said while addressing a party convention at Nowpora-Kalan in Rafiabad.
Accusing the People’s Democratic Party, National Conference and Congress parties of crippling the State Accountability Commission during their regimes, Vakil said there are cases registered with the Commission against most of the leaders of these parties.
He said it was astonishing that the former ministers from these parties have got stay orders from the court to escape from the law of the land. “From the past decade there has been no effort from the successive regimes to remove the stay orders,” Vakil said.
The senior leader lambasted upon the NC and called “ridiculous” the party’s pseudo assurances to safeguard the special status of the State by making 42 amendments in Article 370 by applying Central laws. He said the NC during its regimes, made amendments in Article 35 A, which is responsible for reducing the Article to a hallow.
Vakil also blamed NC for forging alliance with the Congress party which is responsible for abolishing 1953 position and also abolished post of Prime Minister and Sadri-Riyasat in the State.
