Modi govt appoints new inquiry commission

Ahmedabad: The state congress has criticized chief minister Narendra Modi for appointing a commission to inquire into corruption charges against him. The state has on Wednesday appointed former Supreme Court Justice M B Shah to look into the corruption of the Gujarat government.
“Modi has proved that he feared Lokayukta the most. Despite having an institution like Lokayukta, Modi has appointed the commission which has no powers like Lokayukta,” said Shaktisinh Gohil, leader of opposition. He added that the reason Modi appointed the commission was because he and his ministers were involved in large scale corruption activities.
Gohil said that Modi claimed to be honest and was intolerant to any kind of corruption. If that was the case, then he wouldn’t need to avoid Lokayukta.
“Modi, who feared arrest, was hiding from an independent probe and hence he has appointed his own commission. The government does not have any power and if at all Modi wanted to get his corruption probed, he should have ordered an independent probe either by the CBI or the Public Account Committee of the state legislative assembly,” said Gujarat Pradesh Congress president Arjun Modhwadia.
