Shunglu report: Maken files police complaint against Kejriwal




New Delhi, April 20: Delhi Congress president Ajay Maken on Thursday filed a complaint against Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal under the Prevention from Corruption Act.

Citing corruption charges by Shunglu report against Delhi CM, Maken said “We have approached Delhi Police and filed the complaint under Prevention from Corruption act against Arvind Kejriwal and his co-workers. On Nov 27, the report of Shunglu committee was out in front wherein Kejriwal was accused of serious corruption charges. Till now no action has been taken by the central government.”

Maken asserted that he has taken the matter to President Pranab Mukherjee.

Accusing central government for helping Kejriwal, Maken said, “I believe Kejriwal and Central Government are supporting each other and this is the reason why he is still not getting punished. I want the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to stop helping his government.”

He warned against inaction and said if no action is taken then we will consult the judiciary system. We will also send the report to the CBI to take the issue under Prevention of Corruption Act said Delhi Congress President.

Earlier this month, the three-member Shunglu Committee questioned irregularities in the allotment of land by Arvind Kejriwal-led government.

The committee, was set up by former Lt. Governor Najeeb Jung after Delhi High Court gave him primacy to the LG in Delhi administrative affairs in August last year.

The Shunglu Committee was headed by former Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) V.K. Shunglu, and in its 100 page report it raised questions on the allotment of 206, Rouse Avenue – a minister’s bungalow used as party office – to Aam Aap Party (AAP).

The report read: Allotment of 206, Rouse Avenue, known as Deen Dayal Upadhyay Marg (Ministers residences), to AAP. On 08.10.2015 Chief Secretary circulated a decision of the Cabinet approving allotment of land to political parties for construction of offices. The Cabinet “feels that there is an elected Government in National Capital Territory of Delhi and it has the prerogative to frame its own guidelines to allot land, to the political parties having their representation in Delhi Legislative Assembly…… Since Land is a reserved subject this decision should be deemed null and void. It is clear that this decision to allot land to political parties was really to validate allotment of government accommodation to AAP.

Strike in Manipur government offices continues for third day




Imphal, March 24: Despite a warning by Chief Minister N. Biren Singh to employees, the strike in government offices across Manipur continued for the third day on Saturday, paralysing work.

Singh had, on Friday night, asked employees to return to work by Monday, “failing which the government has to find other people to discharge their work”.

Explaining the government’s position, he said: “It will involve an additional expenditure of Rs 1,400 crore annually to implement the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission to pay over 85,000 employees and about 45,000 pensioners. Manipur has been depending mostly on the central government largesse.”

Noting that “before the end of the financial year on March 31, funds have to be sanctioned for a slew of developmental projects”, he urged employees to return to work.

The indefinite strike was jointly called on Thursday by the Joint Administrative Council (JAC) of the All Manipur Trade Unions Council and the All Manipur Government Employees Organisation to protest the government’s failure to implement the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission for employees and pensioners.

Except for the employees in the Secretariat, there is a massive response in all other government offices, pro-strike activists claimed.

The employees on strike pointed out that out of the 19 BJP-ruled states, Manipur is the only one where the recommendations have not been implemented.
