Action on party worker to save corrupt: BJP

Friday, 23 September 2022 | Staff Reporter | RAIPUR

The arrest of Jairam Dubey, a Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Right to Information activist, in a false case is to save the  corrupt and amounts to political vendetta, BJP leader Kedar Gupta said on Thursday.

Kedar Gupta said Dubey had filed more than 200 RTI applications              seeking information, which have revealed many cases of corruption          involving the state government.

Listing examples, he said one RTI application revealed that in Raipur Municipal Corporation limits Zone 1, 7 and 9, around 8,000 quintals of cow dung have been            procured from residents.

But it was found that the beneficiaries are not residents of these three zones. The BJP approached the police to file a FIR alleging pilferage of government funds. Till date no FIR has been lodged.

Also, an additional director level officer of the Health Department was involved in corruption during the Covid-19         pandemic. A departmental probe has found him guilty. But no action has been initiated, the BJP leader said.

RTI documents also show that excise and            revenue losses are being incurred even after liquor prices have been hiked by 70 percent, he said. This is due to a higher sale of liquor illegally.

It is to silence the man behind these exposes that Dubey (45) was arrested on Wednesday in Rajnandgaon with 13 litres of liquor in his car, the BJP said.
