After receiving the permission from speaker of the house, CP Singh, CPI-ML-Liberation MLA vinod Kumar Singh requested for the special debate on behalf of four MLAs. He also said that keeping the enthuse and mood of people in recent Anna Hazare's anti corruption movement, the assembly should take up the special debate on corruption.
He also said that the state had witnessed many scams in the last 10 years from rural electrification to health sector to Jharkhand Public Service Commission examination. Singh claimed that the debate was much required as former ministers, including ex-chief minister of the state and some other senior administrative officers were taken into judicial custody in connection with various scam.
The other signatories who supported the special debate were RJD MLA Annapurna Devi, Marxist Coordination committee MLA Arup Chaterjee and Jharkhand Vikas Morchas Janardhan Paswan.
