Patna: The NDA government in Bihar will constitute an ombudsman to probe corruption charges and recommend action against the guilty elected representatives and officials associated with local bodies in the state, Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi said Monday.

The state government will soon set up an independent local bodies ombudsman in this financial year to act expeditiously into corruption cases in the local bodies, he said at a high-powered meeting to review implementation of reform measures in the decentralized institutions in Bihar.

The ombusman will have the power to probe corruption charges against the elected representatives of the rural and urban bodies, employees and officials and recommend suitable actions against such corruption elements, Modi said.
