No FIR for illegal appointments in Goa: RTI
The Chief Minister of Goa has withheld his consent to anti corruption branch of state vigilance department to lodge an FIR based on the irregularities found in the appointment of 29 Assistant Motor Vehicle Inspectors (AMVIs) by the vigilance enquiry. This was made evident in a reply to an application under Right to Information (RTI) Act.
The decision of the Chief Minister, who also retains the Home portfolio, has come in spite of his earlier acceptance of gross irregularities and his promises of voiding the appointments based on the enquiry report. It is to be mentioned that the institution of Lokayukta has not been established in the state as yet. This is one of the prime reasons why many complaints are complaints pending with the departments of vigilance and police.
