CM warns of stern action against corrupt people

Inaugurating the new office of ACB, constructed with ₹ 98 lakh, at China Gadili here on Thursday evening, Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu said his government had zero-tolerance towards corruption.

The Chief Minister said technology was playing a great role in preventing corruption and quoted the example of online payment of pensions and scholarships and biometric system in public distribution.

However, severe action would be taken against the few indulging in corrupt practices to meet the objective of good governance, he said. To speed up trial, ACB court was also set up at Rajahmundry.
