Properties of corrupt babus would now house schools in MP
Bhopal: Madhya Pradesh government has decided that confiscated premises of officials found guilty of corruption would be turned into schools or `anganwadi` centres (nurseries for underprivileged children), as in Bihar.
The decision was taken by the Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan to mark the State`s Foundation Day, official sources said on Saturday.
A special court for corruption cases at Indore had recently ordered confiscation of the properties belonging to a Regional Transport Office (RTO) clerk, Raman Dhuldhoye.
The order was passed as per the provisions of Madhya Pradesh Special Courts Act, 2011.
Dhuldhoye was found to own a farm house, 5.5 hectares of agricultural land, posh houses at different places and plots of land, among other things.
