APW moves CM against 2 IAS officers

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, June 28 - Voluntary organisation Assam Public Works (APW) today urged Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal to take steps for initiating an inquiry into the alleged corruption indulged in by two IAS officers in the State�s transport department. It has also alleged that the State government has not taken any step to implicate eleven senior officers of the agriculture department in a multi-crore- rupee scam, despite the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) of the State providing definite information on the blatant corruption they were involved in.

In a statement here, the voluntary organisation has alleged that in the State transport department, these two IAS officers, who earned notoriety as land brokers during the previous regime, have appointed an equally corrupt low-rank officer as DTO of Kamrup to perform all the irregular deeds on their behalf.

The irregular deeds include the act of issuing fitness certificates to non-existing vehicles against hefty sums of money, alleged the voluntary organisation.
