Make Tripathi Commission report public: Congress

PTI 05 Nov 2014, 17:35:15 PM IST

Dehradun: Uttarakhand Congress today demanded that the report of Tripathi commission which was probing nearly half a dozen alleged cases of corruption during the previous BJP government in the state be made public and that action must be taken against the guilty.

"The Chief Minister should immediately call a meeting of the state cabinet and make a decision on what action should be taken on the basis of the Tripathi commission report and make it public," Pratap told reporters here.

Soon after the report was submitted by the Commission to Harish Rawat on October 28, the chief minister had told reporters that any action on the commission's report depends on what the Cabinet recommends.

"Nothing should be done out of political vendetta but at the same time those who have committed irregularities should not be spared," Pratap said.

The commission headed by former IAS officer Sushil Chandra Tripathi was looking into nearly half a dozen cases of alleged corruption and scams during the previous BJP government including Siturjia land scam and irregularities in allocation of certain hydel projects in the state.
