Tripura to appoint Lokayukta soon

By Correspondent

AGARTALA, Nov 17 � Tripura Chief Minister Manik Sarkar gave a clear indication of making Lokayukta functional to check corruption in the administration in the State.

Briefing the media at civil secretariet, Sarkar on Wednesday said, �It will have the office of the Chief Minister within its ambit.� In Tripura, the Bill was passed in 2008. But, it has taken time to be turned into an Act. �We have waited for the common platform at the Central level though, no such move has been made so far,� he added.

�The State government is not adopting delay tactics. It is a sensitive subject,� Sarkar said. On February 2010, the President of India had given her assent to the Bill. The State government has decided to bring in a new law to lend more teeth to the institution of the Lokayukta. �We will take a decision on it soon and the proposal would be forwarded to the Governor for his assent,� stated the Chief Minister.

A meeting was held at the State�s Assembly house yesterday to finalize the formation of new Lokayukta body.
