Srinagar, January 1
Former Minister and senior leader Abdul Gani Vakil today in a statement said that present coalition Government has proved itself as a sister concern of National Conference in respect of shielding and encouraging corruption and both the parties seem to have been in an undeclared and secret pact to protect each other from any action of Law. He said that if PDP-BJP Government would have been seriously and wholeheartedly against irregularities and corruption it should have not wasted time in ordering a time bound probe in purchase of substandard pipes,80% non existent SSA School buildings as well as other infamous embezzlements and scams reported during tenure of previous regime. Senior leader lambasted current Government for rendering Accountability Commission defunct and dallying the inquiries into allegations of corruption pending against Ministers, Ex-Minister or Legislators etc. Vakil blamed successive Governments particularly headed by NC for adopting wrong policies and thereby pushing people into deep trouble and agony. He said that no one can deny this fact that unending corruption, favoritism, nepotism and mounting unemployment are the main reasons responsible for worsening the peaceful atmosphere of the State because these issues were of less importance for previous regimes as same remained unaddressed till date. Commenting on recent sacking of few employees, Senior Leader said that nothing is going to change by such Orders until pending corruption cases of big sharks biting dust since decades in various Anti Graft Agencies or Accountability Commission are taken to logical end.
