Milestone in Corruption
Dr. Singhvi added that the true face of the so-called party with a difference coming as it does from the BJP-ruled Madhya Pradesh which is achieving new milestone in corruption and scams VYAPAM was bad enough, it involved multi-deaths, multiple corruption and it was only to make a virtue out of necessity when there was no other option that crying, screaming and resisting State Government agreed to a CBI enquiry through Hon’ble Supreme Court. It was nothing but making a virtue out of necessity. Today we have the so-called Sardar Sarovar Scam unearthed by the Jha Commission. I am going to give you a detailed statement on this.
Briefly, SS Jha Commission was set up about 8 years ago. The Report when it was about to be published, the State Government went to the Hon’ble High Court with the only prayer that stop the publication. Ultimately under Hon’ble Supreme Court orders, it has been placed on the Floor of the House and action taken report ATR - has been demanded. In a nutshell what does it say - it tells you that ’OU STEES’- people displaced, poor people almost 40,000+ families in the Narmada Sardar Sarovar Dam Area for whom huge amounts of R&R released and rehabilitation monies - lakhs of Crores - were earmarked, as mandatory under the Law, were taken and distributed and that Commission has found rampant forgery - these are not my words, these are the words of Commission - in thousands of Cases, where the Report finds that in the sample thousands of cases and checked, forged documents have become the basis of this distribution. Again I am sure you will have resistance, you will have denial, you will have justification, but true face of this absolutely scam-ridden corrupt Government is before us all yet again and every day we only hear homilies from the Prime Minister about the clean governance and the anti-corruption crusade. This is an example of belied anti-corruption crusade. Wednesday¸ October 19, 2016
