Ranchi: Pledging intolerance to corruption, Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren on Friday said his coalition government had been taking action against the corrupt.
"Our government has launched a campaign against corruption. And we have sent a message by taking action against the guilty officials, employees and contractors. Speedy decisions were taken against several pending corruption cases (in government departments)," Soren said.
Addressing a function to mark the 14th foundation day of the state here, Soren said his government believed in action and would not tolerate any laxity by anyone in running a clean and transparent governance with accountability.
Admitting that the aims behind the creation of Jharkhand 13 years ago still remained unfulfilled, he advised the people to move on instead of engaging debates over reasons behind it.
"I appeal to the new generation to follow the previous generations who fought for the state and work together to make Jharkhand a progressive state," Soren added.
"This government has completed only four months. And we have honestly worked, bringing transparency in governance and making a corruption-free environment in this short period," Soren, who leads JMM-led UPA government in the state, claimed.
