DIMAPUR, June 7 - Appealing to the Nagaland Government to implement the Nagaland Lokayukta Bill, an anti-corruption group of the State has sought its introduction during this monsoon session of the State Assembly.

Against Corruption And Unabated Corruption (ACAUT) Nagaland, in a petition to Nagaland Chief Minister Shurhozolie Liezitsu, said the introduction of the Lokayukta bill would be historic and transformative in tune with Christian ethos. It impressed upon the CM to help in building institutional mechanisms whereby the Naga nation is eventually structured upon merit, hard work and dedication.

The ACAUT team along with its consultative member Niketu Iralu met the Chief Minister in his office chamber in Kohima recently and submitted the petition.

Recalling that it had been insisting on such an anti-corruption ombudsman since 2014, the ACAUT said during the tenure of the last CM, a standing committee on Lokayukta headed by Parliamentary Secretary Levi Rengma was formed in 2015. It, however, regretted that the Government of the day did not deem it fit to pass the anti-corruption bill in the State Assembly despite the numerous available opportunities.

The petition said taking over the reins of the State by a statesman of the present CM�s stature is an assurance to the beleaguered people groaning under the weight of corruption and mis-governance that good leadership will prevail. �As time now permits, you institute the Lokayukta in the State of Nagaland,� it appealed.

The ACAUT hoped that this very crucial piece of legislation will be passed during the monsoon session of the State Assembly. Since the Standing Committee report is ready, ACAUT said it sees no reason why it cannot be tabled in the Assembly in July.
