Bhopal: Stating that the recent raids against
lower level officials by the Lokayukta Police revealed the
extent to which corruption was prevailing in the state, Leader
of Opposition in the Madhya Pradesh assembly, Ajay Singh, said
here on Tuesday that Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan should
take action against corrupt ministers and senior officials.
The raids on the lower level employees only revealed the
extent to which corruption was prevailing in Madhya Pradesh.
But there is no point in having raids against class III or
class IV employees. The chief minister should act against
corrupt ministers and top officials, he said.
Singh said that during discussion on the no-confidence
motion in the assembly in the winter session, he had argued
that the Chief Minister should show guts to take action
against some ministers who were allegedly corrupt.
"I know that Chouhan lacks the guts to take on corrupt
ministers," the Leader of Opposition said adding that unless
this was done, the Chief Minister can forget all talk about
converting Madhya Pradesh into a golden state.
The Lokayukta Police had conducted a series of raids
over the last few days on government officials and unearthed
huge amount of unaccounted income.
