Reacting to raid conducted by the anti-corruption wing of Lokayukta at the house of BJP MLA Madal Virupakshappa’s son Prashant Madal, Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraja Bommai on Friday said that Lokayukta is independent, and let free and fair investigation happen.
“The reason behind restarting Lokayukta is to curb corruption in the state. In the Congress regime, many such cases were found but later it was closed. The anti-corruption wing Lokayukta is independent and lets free and fair investigation happen. There has to be an action against those who are guity,” CM Bommai said. “Our motive is to punish culprits, all details are with Lokayukta, whose money was that, where it comes from, everything must come out,” he added.
“Earlier (during Congress regime) Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) closed many corruption cases and stopped investigations. Let everything be investigated and the truth come out, we will investigate all those cases,” he added.
