Vishakhapatnam: YSRC ministers have been giving clear indications to the government officials that they are not going to tolerate corruption and will not hesitate to send the officials concerned to home if found corrupt. As promised by Chief Minister Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy that he will give a corruption-free ruling in the state, the ministers have been sending a message that they are against corruption.

This corruption-free rule has become a slogan for the ministers wherever they go. The review meetings and the Press Conferences have been beginning with the statements of corruption- free rule.

Though Mr Reddy was not in the government in the past, he had faced several corruption allegations. The social media had also trolled Jagan Mohan Reddy when he promised a corruption-free rule during his Padayatra. Now, it seems that Mr  Reddy wants to come out of it by giving a corruption-free rule in the state.

Now, the ministers have started warning the officials concerned that they will not hesitate to act on any corrupt officials and the importance will be given to honest officers.

Tourism minister Muttamsetti Srinivas, in a review meeting held in Vizag with the district officials said: “We are not going to encourage corruption and without any doubt, we will send the corrupt officials home. The development of the state was stalled due to various corrupt activities of the earlier government and has now remained in debts.”

Similarly, roads and building minister Dharmana Krishna Das, in a review meeting held with the officials concerned in Srikakulam, directed the officials to work honestly and warned that the corrupt activities will prove costly for anyone.

“The Chief Minister is very clear and said that corruption-free rule should be ensured for the public. He kept himself simple even during the swearing-in ceremony. There were clear instructions for us from the Chief Minister, regarding corruption, and this shows the dedication for serving the public. We will not allow corruption in the state. Jagan Mohan Reddy has implemented 80 per cent of the election promises in just 20 days and the promise made for corruption-free rule is now visible.”
