GUWAHATI, March 1 � Asserting that corruption in high offices would not be condoned, Governor PB Acharya today cautioned all concerned, including ministers and bureaucrats, to desist from committing acts that were not in public interest.
Talking to media persons, the Governor said that irrespective of the status of those indulging in corruption, the law would catch up with them and that the jail would be their ultimate destination.
The Governor also expressed deep shock at the unabated killing of rhinos in the Kaziranga National Park and called for a detailed report on the matter from the Government.
He even said that if those responsible for protection of the heritage animal were not up to the mark, they would do well to quit gracefully. He reiterated his stand that the security personnel manning the national park be re-equipped and the entire security mechanism revamped with state-of-the-art armoury and modern techniques.
He asserted that such criminal acts should be nipped in the bud and all the criminals involved be arrested and punished.
