Lucknow, Apr 1 : The Uttar Pradesh government has ordered a vigilance inquiry against BSP state president Ram Achal Rajbhar in disproportionate assets case on the recommendation of Lokayukta.
“The state government has ordered a vigilance inquiry against the BSP state president following the recommendations of Lokayukta Justice N K Mehrotra,” official sources said here.
The Lokayukta office has been intimated that Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav has directed the Vigilance establishment to conduct an inquiry on March 25, they said.
The Lokayukta had on March 14 recommended CBI or vigilance inquiry against Rajbhar, who was Transport Minister in the previous Mayawati government.
“I have send my report on a complaint against former transport minister Ram Achal Rajbhar to the Chief Minister,” Lokayukta had told PTI.
He had also recommended that an FIR should also be lodged against the BSP state president under Anti Corruption Act on the charges of disproportionate assets and money laundering.
The recommendations were made on a complaint lodged by Anand Kumar Dwivedi, who accused the minister of acquiring assets in the name of his relatives beyond the known sources of his income.
