Once again, there are allegations of corruption against officials working in the department of cooperation in Uttar Pradesh. The government has put them under suspension.
Shivpal Singh Yadav, Cooperative minister has charged that these officials had committed serious irregularities during the Mayawati government. The names of the officials have not been made public so far.
According to the minister, appropriate legal action would be taken against all the erring officials.
The new government of Akhilesh Singh Yadav and especially Shiv Pal Singh Yadav, the cooperative minister has been focusing on the cooperative sector in the state in a big way. But hope it is not a witch-hunting of those officials who were active during Mayawati’s regime.
