Dehra Dun: Asserting that Uttarakhand
government is committed to deal with corruption strictly,
Parliamentary Affairs Minister Prakash Pant today said it is
ready to face inquiry by any agency, including CBI.
If Congress has doubts in any matter and they want to
investigate it, they can request the UPA government at the
Centre to handover it to any agency, including the CBI, Pant
His statement came in the wake of Congress` demands for a
CBI probe into a number of issues on basis of the Comptroller
and Auditor General (CAG)`s report tabled in the just
concluded Assembly Session.
He said the CAG report would be sent to Public Accounts
Committee (PAC) of the House and action would be taken as per
"Any person, who is found guilty, would be punished,"
He pointed out that Congress MLA Pritam Singh is the
chairman of PAC and added that "they (Congress) should wait
for its recommendations."
Moreover, the Minister said out of 32 paragraphs of CAG
report, 14 are related with the issues of previous Congress
government, while 12 others are those which were started
during previous government and completed in ruling BJP`s
tenure. Only six paragraphs are concerned with the current
government, he claimed.
Besides, there are only procedural errors which have been
pointed out during audit of works and they are not financial
irregularities, he said.
