The memorandum alleged serious fincial lapses and scams relating to infrastructure of schools, hospitals, roads, deteriorating law-and-order situation, insecurity among women and serious allegations about Centrally-funded welfare projects.
The Governor gave a patient hearing and assured the delegation that he will forward the memorandum to the Chief Minister for action. He also said that he will call the ministers concerned where serious allegations of fincial lapses are there, so that the BJP leaders and ministers face to face can address the issues. He further said that if any officials are found guilty to the alleged offences, action will be taken as per law.
The Governor requested the MLAs and MPs to come out in detail with their development fund performances in their own Assembly and Parliamentary constituencies.
