Dehra Dun: Close on the heels of enacting a
tough Lokayukta Bill in Uttarakhand, Chief Minister B C
Khanduri has said the state won`t tolerate corruption.
"Corruption in any form will not be tolerated in the
state...honest and committed people will get encouragement and
support," he told a public meeting in Uttarkashi on Thursday.
The Uttarakhand Assembly on Tuesday passed a bill to set
up a Lokayukta which brings in its net the post of the Chief
Minister, ministers, MLAs and government servants including
IAS and IPS officers with a provision of life imprisonment or
more severe punishment.
