Hyderabad, Nov 14 (UNI) The Andhra Pradesh Government has constituted a Committee, headed by the State Chief Secretary, to go into the monograph of former Vigilance Commissioner Samal, Higher Education Minister D Srinivas told the State Legislative Council today.

Replying to a question from Opposition TDP floor leader Dadi Veerabhadra Rao, the Minister substituting for Chief Minister Y S Rajasekhara Reddy, said the Committee had met once and was examining various aspects of the monograph, leveling allegations against IAS, IFS and IPS officers.

The Committee, having Anti-Corruption Bureau Director General and Vigilance and Enforcement Director General as members and Principal Secretary to the Government as member-convenor, would submit its report after getting information from various departments.

Mr Srinivas said though the monograph was not an official report, the Government had constituted the Committee to go into it.

Mr Samal had not submitted the reports from 2004 till his retirement this year and had prepared his monograph after his retirement.

Taking exception to the appointment of the Chief Secretary and ACB Director General in the Committee when they were named in the monograph, the TDP leaders demanded a judicial inquiry into it.

However, the Minister ruled out ordering judicial inquiry as it was not an official report, prompting the TDP to stage a walkout.

The Minister accused the TDP Government from 1997 to 2003 of taking no action despite the then Vigilance Commissioner submitting his report. The Government would prove its transparent administration by placing the Committee report in the House and before the people.
