Yogi govt's extra vigil to curb corruption in UP

Lucknow, Aug 29 (TIWN) To curb corruption in transfer postings and awarding of contracts, the Uttar Pradesh government is all set to adopt strict measures which include keeping a tight vigil on all ministers and their departments.

"There is no place for corrupt officials and staff in the government... Action must be taken against such officials by forcing them to take voluntary retirement," an official release quoted him as saying at a meeting here to review the work of the Secretariat Administration Department.

Chairing another review meeting of the Home department, Adityanath also warned corrupt police officials saying, "Officials who cannot work in an honest manner with the policing system, should be forced to take voluntary retirement. The official who does not take interest in working, is a burden and a blot on the police uniform, they should be given the voluntary retirement. Corrupt police personnel will either go to their home or to jail."

Adityanath talked tough as part of his government's renewed efforts to weed out corruption from the bureaucracy and ensure speedy development and effective implementation of welfare measures.

His terse warning came days after the central government dismissed from service 12 senior income tax officers on charges of corruption and professional misconduct.

The list was topped by a Joint Commissioner rank officer against whom there were serious complaints of corruption and extortion from businessmen accused of helping self-styled godman Chandraswami.
