K Chandrasekhar Rao vows to root out graft
Nizamabad: Determined to stamp out corruption, Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao reiterated his stance and said that the Telangana government would deal strictly with political corruption. “If ruling TRS leaders are involved in irregularities, they may be arrested without hesitation," he said.
Setting aside the old traditions and customs in the official machinery, the officers should be innovative and evolve new methods, and work for comprehensive development, he said.
In a three-hour long review meeting with elected representatives and district officials here on Thursday, Mr Rao said that officers should work with great commitment and determination. “We will take utmost care while providing postings to the officers and they should not be transferred at least for two years so as to allow them to work with confidence,” he said.
The CM said that the officials should respect elected representatives and work in tandem with them. Mr Rao said that they would strive hard to make Telangana a model state in the country and look towards international recognition. In all fronts, the government will take steps for integrated development.
Stringent action will be initiated against errant officials, involved in scams. “No one will be spared and officers should provide necessary information to CID officials in this regard."
He said new Acts would be brought in for industrial zones. Cultivable lands will not be acquired by government for industrial needs. Five municipal corporations including Nizamabad in Telangana state will be developed on international lines.
