MP Leader of Opposition wants CM to disclose names of Lokayukta-sought ministers

MP Lokayukta Justice has alleged that state govt is not providing information related to corruption charges.

Leader of Opposition in Madhya Pradesh Assembly Ajay Singh today urged Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan to disclose the names of the ten state ministers about whom Lokayukta had sought information from the government following complaints of corruption.

Madhya Pradesh Lokayukta Justice (retd) P P Naolekar had alleged in a newspaper interview yesterday that the state government was not making available the documents pertaining to the complaints of corruption that he received against the ministers.

“Since Chouhan always maintained that he will not tolerate corruption in Madhya Pradesh,he must disclose the names of the corrupt ministers to the Lokayukta,” Ajay Singh said in a statement.

The Chief Minister should also make available whatever information Lokayukta requires in this connection,he added.

“The manner in which corruption has become widespread during the BJP rule is something which was never seen before. Development may have taken place under Chouhan’s rule,but there is no doubt that corruption has increased four times in the last 10 years,” Singh said.
