Uttar Pradesh: Governor Ram Naik writes to Adityanath about official’s alleged bribe demand

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.
