DEHRADUN: Days after chief minister Trivendra Singh Rawat announced zero tolerance towards corruption, the BJP government has readied a list of honest officers as part of its plan to fulfil its poll promise of delivering clean administration.
“The CM will pick a team of officials and bureaucrats with impeccable track records... They will take over soon...,” a senior official told Hindustan Times, adding that the list was ready and is being reviewed at the highest level. “The list was prepared on the basis of the available records of the services put in by the high ranking bureaucrats as well as other officials and the inputs gathered by the local intelligence unit.”
The chief minister had directed top bureaucrats to prepare a list of officials with clean track record soon after he took over on March 18. “The list includes the top, middle and lower level officials whose track record was found clean and delivery fast,” another official said, adding the move was in keeping with the BJP’s pre-poll promise of providing a clean and efficient administration.
The reports of the chief minister assembling a team of “honest and efficient” officials came amid reports of a major bureaucratic shake up on the cards.
BJP state vice-president Jyoti Prasad Gairola confirmed that a move was on to prepare a list of officials who are both honest and efficient. “The move is in keeping with the chief minister’s recent announcement of his government’s zero tolerance towards corruption,” he told Hindustan Times.
The Trivendra Singh Rawat-led BJP government has already introduced a ‘strengthened’ Lokaykta Bill in the assembly’s recently concluded interim budget session. The proposed anti-graft law though had to be referred to the Select Committee after the opposition Congress raised some objections to certain provisions.
Parliamentary minister Prakash Pant is on record saying that the BJP government was committed to keep its pre-poll promise to get the anti-graft law passed in the assembly within the 100 days of coming to power.
