Aug 16, 2012

Chief Minister of eastern Indian state of Bihar, Nitish Kumar. has said he was confident to make the state corruption free as it was making the society 'hollow'.

After unfurling the Tricolour at the Gandhi Maidan in Patna, Kumar said "Corruption is making the society hollow and it is extremely necessary to be brought under a check.... I have full confidence that we will be able to stamp out corruption (from the state)."
 
Kumar said a strong three-member Lokayukta has started functioning in the state and he had asked for bringing the Chief Minister, public representatives, the chief secretary and all government employees and all police official including the DGP within the purview of the Lokayukta.
 
He said: "Not only this, there will be no role of the government or chief minister in the selection process for Lokayukta. We have made the process completely transparent. We have adopted a zero-tolerance policy against crime like corruption and the process of confiscation of corrupt public servants has started under the Special Court Act."
