Director General Anti-Corruption Establishment Punjab Brig. (R) Muzaffar Ali Ranjha has directed regional directors Anti-Corruption Punjab to focus the corruption in illegal Housing Schemes, Cooperative Housing Societies, manufacturing and sale of spurious drugs with connivance of Drug Inspectors and gratification in Land Record Centers and take prompt action against officials on receipt of complaints against these departments.
While addressing monthly review meeting of Regional Directors of Anti-Corruption, Muzaffar Ali Ranjha said that illegal housing schemes and cooperative housing societies are plundering huge public money in connivance with the concerned development authorities, TMAs and Cooperative Department. Plot mafia is active and looting total savings of the local as well as overseas and the effected persons are running from pillar to post for justice. All concerned departments have closed their eyes over plundering which shows that these are co-accused in the scams.
He said that culprits involved in manufacturing and sale of spurious drugs are playing with the lives of the citizens and this can’t be continued without help and cooperation of Drug Inspectors and concerned officials of Health Department. Chief Minister Punjab has effectively started a drive against spurious drug dealers and officers of Anti-Corruption Establishment (ACE) are directed to pull their socks to make the campaign more effective and result oriented.
He said that Punjab Government has started Land Record Management Information System aiming at to minimize role of patwari and prompt delivery of verified copies of land record/documents without hazards but still people are lodging complaints of gratification on the part of patwaris which is an attempt to fail LRMIS.
