UP: Governor Ram Naik writes to Adityanath about official’s alleged bribe demand
Uttar Pradesh Governor Ram Naik in his letter to CM Yogi Adityanath over alleged corruption in his office said that the Government will take proper action on it.
Speaking to ANI, Ram Naik said,''Whenever I receive a complaint or a suggestion, I forward it to the concerned minister. I have sent a letter. The government will take proper action on it.''
Naik also forwarded an email accusing Adityanath's Principal Secretary SP Goyal of demanding a bribe of Rs 25 lakh to sanction land for a project.
Earlier, a Lucknow resident Abhishek Gupta alleged that Goyal sought the bribe to alot him Gram Sabha land in Hardoi district to widen a road for setting up a fuel outlet. Adityanath has ordered an inquiry into the "factual position" in Gupta's allegations against Goyal.
The letter comes at a time when Adityanath is reportedly cracking down on corruption in the state.
