Udupi: A parallel probe is unconstitutional said former Union Minister Janardhan Poojary referring to the formation of Anti Corruption Bureau (ACB). He was speaking at a press meet held at the Press Club, here on March 26.
A parallel probe by both anti-graft agency Lokayukta and Anti Corruption Bureau is unconstitutional according to Article 20(2).
ACB is created by an executive order, what is the necessity for the creation of ACB while Lokayukta is in force in the state.
The formation of ACB seems to be a deliberate attempt to destroy the Lokayukta. The ACB is formed for the protection of corrupt officials and politicians. “Chief Minister you have come to power by fighting against corruption and at this phase you want to malign your image by protecting corrupt bureaucrats and politicians, please scrap the order”. “Your move to create ACB has damaged the image of the Congress party and your political career”.
MLA’s and MP’s representing Karnataka have no guts and morality to address the issues of Yettinahole project. They are trying hard to kill the Netravati River. MLA’s and MP’s have shut their mouth on the Yettinahole project.
The state is affected by drought; CM should show his commitment towards addressing drought problems in 137 Taluks.
The central government is not committed to address the Mahadayi river dispute. Farmers are suffering, but the PM is silent on the issue, this shows his attitude and concern towards the farmers. The people of Karnataka are also the citizens of India, address their issues, he said.
