He also accused Minister of patronizing the corruption in the department added that he (Haq Khan) has failed the department.
“I have evidence and orders where the minister has transferred BDOs within a fortnight, giving choicest posting to some BDOs, making “inspectors” in charge for two to three CD blocks,” Saroori said and added that as per law, I have moved the motion and I stand by it. I will produce the evidence before the committee which the speaker will appoint for probe,” he said.
