New Delhi, July 23 (ANI): The Delhi Government on Thursday issued a statement calling the appointment of M.K Meena as Anti-Corruption Branch Chief ‘illegal’, and threatened him of legal action over his statement accusing the Arvind Kejriwal-led Government of not transferring the calls, received on their anti-corruption helpline number 1031, to the agency.
“The Government of NCT of Delhi once again puts on record that Mr. Mukesh Kumar Meena, IPS, is not the ACB Chief. He is just assigned to look after the work of training and monitoring of under-trial cases at ACB. Mr. S.S.Yadav, IPS, is the Chief of ACB. Any decision regarding the ACB as its Chief is to be taken by Mr.Yadav only,” the statement said.
“Mr. Meena’s statement on helpline is sheer case of impersonation and the Delhi Government will take action for the same against him. Mr. Meena, was posted at ACB in an illegal manner at the behest of PM to scuttle the anti-corruption drive of Delhi Government,” it added.
The statement further said that the issuing of new helpline numbers would be dealt with ‘legally’.
“Anti-corruption helpline 1031 stands as helpline for all anti-corruption complaints. No other helpline is working for this purpose. Any attempt to send out confusing statements on helpline 1031and statement on issuing new helpline numbers will be dealt with legally,” the Delhi Government stated.
Meena has accused the Delhi Government of not transferring the calls, received on their anti-corruption helpline number.
“We’ve observed from the past one month, no calls are being received on the Anti Corruption helpline no.1031 which has been issued by the Delhi Government. People were calling but the calls were not directed to our office. We have decided to issue new helpline numbers which will be received by our office,” said Meena.
According tom reports, ACB has also released two new helpline numbers to battle corruption. (ANI)
