Dehra Dun: A day after the passage of the
Lokayukta Bill by the Legislative Assembly, Uttarakhand Chief
Minister BC Khanduri on Wednesday said several steps had been
initiated to eradicate corruption and provide good governance
in the state.
"Corruption is eating into the vitals of the society.
Funds allocated for development are siphoned off through
corrupt means," he told a rally in his constituency Dhumakot
in Pauri district.
Khanduri said a strong Lokayukta would be in place in
the state soon after the passage of the bill in this regard.
To provide good governance and transparent
administration, the state government had formulated the Right
to Public Service Act.
This would help in service delivery to the people in a
time-bound manner, he said.
The Chief Minister laid foundation stones of a number of
development schemes in Dhumakot.
