M.K Meena defends position as ACB Chief, says will continue to discharge duties

New Delhi, July 23 (ANI): M.K Meena on Thursday defended his position as the Anti-Corruption Branch Chief asserting that he had been appointed by Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung and slammed the Delhi Government for derecognising him, saying that he would not like to comment on ‘people who do not have faith in the Constitution’.

“People who are saying this must know that Lieutenant Governor is the competent authority and I have been appointed by him. I want to remind them that the High Court also has passed orders that I will discharge my duties as ACB Chief. I don’t want to comment on people who do not have faith in the Constitution and the honourable High Court,” said Meena.

The Delhi Government issued a statement earlier today 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.

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)
