The Jharkhand Chief Minister Arjun Munda said that his government is determined to make
the state corruption free and it is taking all the necessary
steps to achieve this goal.
To make the bureaucracy accountable to the people and
cleanse the system of 'babudom and nepotism', the government
will be bringing bills on Right to Services Act and
Information Technology Act in the coming Monsoon session of
the state assembly, he said.
When asked if any BJP leader or top government
functionary is found guilty of corruption, Munda asserted, "no
one is above law and law will take its own course even if the
Chief Minister himself is found guilty in any such case."
The chief minister said that the government will make all
the services in the state time bound and the concerned
government functionaries will have to provide the services as
per the time schedule else they will face the music.
He said that all the government programmes under the
social security schemes, issuance of several government
certificates and many other services and the departments will
be kept in the ambit of the RTSA so that the authorities are
made more accountable.
All the services, documents and certificates will be
provided at the panchayats, blocks and wards and to make these
documents authentic, the IT Act bill is also being prepared to
be introduced in the assembly.
He said that the Bills to be introduced in the assembly
will be given final shape in the cabinet meeting of August 23.
