Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh has cleared the governments proposal to allow the state Vigilance and Anti-Corruption Bureau to probe corruption allegations against some ministers in the previous BJP government in alleged illegal land deals.
A fortnight ago,AICC general secretary Birender Singh had asked the CM,during a meet of PCC office-bearers,to probe corruption charges listed in a charge-sheet that the Congress had submitted to President Pranab Mukherjee when in opposition.
In response,Virbhadra had announced that the government will try to get the original copy of the chargesheet and refer the case to the Vigilance. While the state government is yet to receive it,the CM has decided to give his nod for the probe. Its true,the CM has made the orders. Once we get the original copy and communication from the Rashtrapati Bhawan,the government will take necessary steps to probe the allegations. Since even earlier it was the state Vigilance and Anti-Corruption Bureau that inquired into earlier charge-sheet of the BJP,the government will do the same, confirmed Chief Secretary Sudripta Roy.
