ACB to register an FIR and investigate the misuse of Covid relief

Goa : The state government’s decision to direct the anti-corruption branch (ACB) to register an FIR and investigate the misuse of Covid relief scheme for building and other construction workers (BOCW) should not be an eyewash, Goa Forward Party (GFP) said on Friday.Reacting to chief minister Pramod Sawant’s announcement, GFP vice-president Durgadas Kamat questioned the delay in issuing the directions. “It has been over two months since the Lokayukta passed an order. Let’s hope this is not an eyewash that the chief minister is doing,” Kamat said. “Why did it take so long for the chief minister to order an investigation.”

As per the Lokayukta Act, the government has 90 days to accept the Lokayukta’s recommendations. GFP said that the government may have delayed in giving the nod for the ACB to investigate as the labour department may have been trying to doctor the evidence.“Even if the government tried to destroy the evidence, we have all the files, documentary evidence to prove,” Kamat said.
