UP Vigilance Dept seeks permission to probe Ex-BSP Minister
Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh Vigilance Department has sought permission to lodge a case against former BSP minister Rangnath Misra in connection with charges of disproportionate assets against him.
According to official sources, the vigilance department has sought permission from the state government to probe into the allegations of disproportionate assets against Misra, who was the Secondary Education Minister in Mayawati government.
Last year, Misra was sacked by the then UP Chief Minister Mayawati after state Lokayukta recommended his dismissal on charges of owning disproportionate assets.
Lokayukta Justice NK Mehrotra had said in his report to Mayawati that an inquiry had found Misra guilty of possessing assets disproportionate to his known sources of income.
A preliminary inquiry by vigilance department, ordered by Mayawati, has found the charges to be correct.
