According to the GenNext, the Government issued the order of immediate transfer of PI Raposo belonging to Anti-Corruption Bureau to safeguard the interest of Malvankar who is apparently a brother in law of Chief Minister Laxmikant Parsekar. The shocking fact is that the transfer of PI Raposo has come in the backdrop of vigilance week. According to the GenNext convenor Durgadas Kamat, Chief Minister Laxmikant Parsekar is trying to protect Malvankar whose EDC bribery case is investigated by PI Raposo.
It may be recalled that in the month of August ACB (Anti-Corruption Bureau) had arrested Dilip Malvankar, brother in law of Chief Minister Laxmikant Parsekar red-handed while accepting the bribe of Rs. 100,000 for facilitating the allotment of plot in the Tuem industrial estate. According to the available information, Malwankar was working as a field officer in government undertaking GIDC (Goa Industrial Development Corporation) and while taking the bribe he was on duty.
After the arrest of Malvankar Chief Minister Laxmikant Parsekar made it clear that the culprit will be punished and “The Law will take its own course” he also assured that he will not interfere in this case saying that “according to me to everybody is same in front of law”, but very soon law freed Malvankar on the bail.
GenNext has decided to write to the governor of Goa Mrudula Sinha about this issue. “PI Raposo was working on the Malvankar’s case and his transfer is done to keep him away from the investigation, which is not correct, Government is having 100% tolerance to corruption,” Durgadas Kamat said.
Being on the top position is one thing and taking advantage of the position is another. It is the fact that when police do their duty properly and fight against the corrupt bureaucrats or ministers they face the transfers which are obviously initiated by the concern bureaucrats or the ministers. There is no room for fair investigation in our system. If you think whatever is happening is wrong, then please raise your voice against it. Your comments and suggestions matter the most here.
