Moily hints at tribunals at the district level to deal with graft cases
‘Drop idea of coming to power with JD(S) help'
DHARWAD: Union Minister for Law and Justice M. Veerappa Moliy said here on Monday that the Union Government was contemplating appointing ombudsmen at the district level to monitor implementation of the Central Government's flagship programmes.
Speaking to the presspersons on the sidelines of a function here, Mr. Moily said there had been scores of complaints pertaining to corruption and irregularities in implementing the schemes, misuse of funds and others. Hence, the Centre was considering developing an effective mechanism like appointment of ombudsmen in association with the State Governments to check this and ensure implementation of the schemes, he said.
In addition, the Centre would take steps to set up independent tribunals at the district level to deal with cases relating to corruption so that such cases could be sorted out with in shorter duration.
Mr. Moily said the Grama Nyalayala was functioning well in several parts of the country. Citing the example of Rajasthan, he said about 150 Gram Nyayalayas set up in that State had become popular. There were instance of solving of more than 500 cases judiciously in the village level by these village courts, Mr. Moily said and regretted that the Karnataka Government had not cooperated with him in this connection. “When they are busy with their own business, how can they find time for such matters?” he said.
Earlier, speaking at a Congress workers' meet, Mr. Moily said the State Congress leaders should permanently relinquish the idea of coming to power aligning with the Janata Dal (Secular).
He said that time and again the Janata Dal (Secular) had proved that it was not a reliable political ally. But still a section of State Congress leaders thought that they would have enjoyed power in case Congress made up its mind to ally with Janata Dal (Secular) in recent political turmoil in the State.
