Expenditure incurred by police
Big question mark?
Vinod Chandrashekhar DixitR.B. Suri8/27/2018 11:09:31 PM
After having done the Audit of J&K Police, the Accountant General, J&K had furnished the detailed 'Audit Report' where under it was pinpointed therein the grave irregularities and defects about the financial scam involving the huge an amount of 116 crores of rupees drawn from the state exchequer during the Last Assembly/Lok Sabha elections held in 2014, to the Jammu and Kashmir government of the time and had sought for the detailed reply and the compliance to the certain objectionable paras of the said report. This was a major financial scam which came to lime light in the year 2016 and there is no such instance of scam of such nature. In this scam, top heads of (SPs and SSPs) the various Districts of the state are involved in it. While drawing the fake and fabricated bills from the various Government Treasuries of the state, the top of the Districts had shown the registration numbers of the scooter, bikes, tractors, bulldozers and the nos. of their private cars and vehicles in connection with the transportation of the men and materials for the purpose of the conducting of the Lok Sabha and Assembly elections held in 2014. It is pertinent to mention that the money amounting to crores stands withdrawn from the different treasuries functioning in the state under the Security Related Expenditure (SRE). The scam was exposed by the CAG during the audit of a sample of nine SSPs, SPs and the DDCs who got over 116 corers from the PHQ for the carriage of constabulary and hiring of the vehicles under SRE. All these stand mentioned by CAG in its letter to the State Government enclosing there in voluminous report of 162 pages. Based upon the same the the Coalition Government of PDP and BJP ordered a probe into this big financial scam but the results of which never come in the public domain or in the print and electronic medias on date. People of the state came to know about the same from the print media in April 2016. This means that the major cases of the misappropriations and huge embezzlements have been hushed up and the wrongdoers have been pardoned by the then State Government, it is believed. Now the Jammu and Kashmir state is under the Governor's Rule and the administrative matters are moving nicely with the geared up speed under the command and control of the new incumbent BVR Subramanaym as the Chief Secretary of the state administration. A high level 'probe' into the said scam by the various experts or the CBI is needed much to extract the truth on this score. The situation demands that the new Governor Satya Pal Malik should issue the orders for probing the matter vigorously in the right perspective so that the wrongdoers are not go scot free otherwise it would be a signal to the wrongdoers that there is nobody who can harm them administratively or through Judiciary. By ordering a probe into the matter, the Governor may set an example that no body is above law and whosoever - top Bureaucrats or the big Corporate can swindle the Government exchequer in future. In case the objectionable audit para pinpointing this financial scam in the AG's Report stands replied by the then State Government over which the AG J&K stands apprised and who is fully satisfied by the answers to the various queries raised therein the report and the rectifications of the defects and the irregularities, it is the high time to act promptly and the Governor may instruct the Police Administration that such like wrongs should not be repeated failing which the guiltiest would be punished under the law of the land.It is worth mentioning over here that some top Police heads in the government set up enjoy the patronage of the political leaders in power because of which they commit such crimes as they know that in case they are held criminally liable and responsible, they manage to use their influence in getting the clean chits from the Vigilance organizations of the state. This is very unfortunate. Since
(During Assembly & Lok SAbha Polls - 2014)
he state is under Governor's Rule, it is must leaving no chance for the next political government in the state to shield the culprits and the wrongdoers in the months to come. People believe that the Governor's Administration is very strict in disposing of such cases of misappropriations and huge embezzlements. The Governor's action, on this score, is very important indeed. Under the circumstances, a high level probe into this financial scam is needed very much to extract the truth and the guiltiest are punished severally in accordance with the law of the land. The financial scam is pertaining to the period when the Parliament and Assembly elections were held in the state of Jammu and Kashmir in 2014 under the regime of Omar Abdullah.
Accountant General J&K got conducted the Audit of the Police Administration and during the course of Audit, the Auditors found glaring and instances of grave irregularities in the transportation of the police officials, vehicles and the constabulary from one place to another across the state for conducting of the Parliament and Assembly elections in J&K. After having conducted the Audit, the Audit Report was prepared by the AG J&K and was sent to the State Government for immediate compliance. It has been learnt that no proper rectifications of the irregularities committed by the Police Administration have been carried out yet as a compliance as regards the defects and the grave irregularities committed.
In our system of governance, probes are generally ordered and with the passage of time, people forget them and the state authorities pardon the guiltiest and the influential wrongdoers and often withdraw the cases filed against them in the court of law subsequently as a result of which guiltiest and the influential wrongdoers go scot free generally and without any loss to them. In India, the wrongdoers have occupied the top posts of public importance across the country and are busy in minting money adopting the underhand means and enjoying the luxurious and comfortable lives. They do visit abroad many a times for the pleasure trips for enjoyment along with their families to which a common man cannot afford to do so. Besides this, there are instances about the politicians and the big Corporate which include Lalu Parshad Yadav, Harshad Mehta, Vijay Mallaya, A. Raja, Kannimorhi of DMK in 2G scam and in coal scam Jindal steel group. Some got the punishments and whereas the others are still facing in the court of law. But in the administrative set up of the country top brass go scot free and occupy the top posts once again after getting the clean chit from the State / Central Governments particularly the IAS and IPS officers Even the tainted IAS . IPS officers of the country are enjoying their luxurious lives along with their families in and outside the country without any fear.
Prior to this big scam, it is also worth mentioning over here that in the past, there were some instances where the SRE funds were miss utilized on the renovations and beautification of the rented accommodation buildings for the IAs and IPS working in the state that in crores of rupees. All such things one can find in the parliamentary democracy whereas in other countries, their Rule of Law is very strong and effective in dealing with such matters and after noticing the same, the authorities of such countries take the cognizance in the right perspective and act promptly and after a summary trial for a month or so they convict the offender and send the wrongdoers to Jails. Under the circumstances, there is a dire need in our state also for making the laws very stringent so that the wrong doer may not go scot free. With the change of guard in the state, the new governor should order a thorough probe into the matter and all those who are guilty, on this score, be booked and after the summary trial for the offences they had committed, they be penalized severely.
