In Madhya Pradesh, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has suspended three RTOs in the state over allegations of corruption in trucks bought from a bank in UP. Also, directed to take disciplinary action against two more ARTOs (Assistant Divisional Transport Officers) for giving serial BG number reserved for government vehicles as private vehicle numbers.
The government took the step at the Department of Transportation on Tuesday under the zero tolerance policy. An official spokesman said a scam worth Rs 10 crore took place in Jabalpur, Madhya Pradesh, in the name of buying a car from a bank. It purchased 50 vehicles, of which 20 trains are still unknown, 10 of the 30 were found in Uttar Pradesh. Not only did the three accused officers verify these papers, they were also recommended in many papers.
The CBI was investigating the bank fraud and the CBI wrote a letter to the state government to take immediate action against the three officials. Following this, the government on Tuesday immediately posted Assistant Divisional Transport Officer (Administration) Arun Kumar Rai, Assistant Divisional Transport Officer (Administration) of Arai, Dharmavir Yadav and Assistant Divisional Transport Officer of Mau Audhesh Kumar. .
Official numbers have been distributed to private vehicles
On the other hand, the issue of issuing serial BG numbers as private numbers for government vehicles in Jhansi has also come to the fore. In this, 9700 registration numbers of BG series reserved for government vehicles were allotted to private sector vehicles. There are 10000 numbers in a series. There has been a lot of corruption in this case too. Therefore, disciplinary action has been directed against Jhansi Assistant Divisional Officer Vivek Kumar Shukla and Assistant Divisional Transport Officer (Administrative) Satyendra Kumar.
