Thiruvananthapuram: The Vigilance and Anti-Corruption Bureau (VACB) has come up with a new action plan to make the state corruption-free. A slew of recommendations including technological upgrades has been initiated to crack down on organised corruption.
New Vigilance chief Manoj Abraham held talks with officials from SP rank and higher regarding this action plan.
The major recommendations are improving intelligence surveillance and increasing primary inspections and surprise raids. Based on conclusive confidential inputs those involved in unauthorised wealth accumulation will be nabbed. However, Abraham pointed out that the move should not trouble innocent people.
The list of officials known for corruption in all departments should be updated at regular intervals. Similarly, the nexus of officials between peddlers and middlemen will be sleuthed.
The measures to ramp up public participation and sensitization will be in place. Adalats should be organized across all districts of the state. In this regard, the support of Student Police and NCC cadets needs to be ensured.
New technologies should be in place to have a full-fledged fight against corruption.
