Past wrongs of govt to be probed properly: Ravi Shankar Prasad
Government on Monday announced that all past wrongs committed by any senior functionary in the government will be thoroughly probed and no one will be shielded. ‘I want to convey that our government is very keen that all these past wrongs must be properly investigated. The government will fully support those investigations, and the government will not shield anyone,’ telecom minister Ravi Shankar Prasad announced in Lok Sabha. The minister’s statement came after AIADMK member M Thambidurai wanted to know what action government is taking against the alleged illegal establishment of a telephone exchange at the premises of former telecom minister Dayanidhi Maran when he was in office. Prasad said CBI is investigating the matter and he would be able to inform the House about the progress of the probe only after collecting detailed information. ‘When investigation is going on, it will not be appropriate for me to take up this matter here. As regards the other complicity of certain officers at the Departmental level, with regard to that transaction, I will surely get a report and I will furnish it,’ he said.
