JAMMU: Jammu and Kashmir Governor N N Vohra today asked Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti to ensure timely action is taken on State Vigilance Commission's reports.
"Governor N N Vohra in a letter to Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti has noted with regret that for the past several years there has been continuing failure in timely action being taken on the reports furnished by the SVC," an official spokesman said here.
The Governor has also observed that no action has so far been taken on the recommendations made by the SVC on amendments to the provisions of the Vigilance Commission Act, 2011.
He suggested an urgent review meeting at the Chief Minister's level and asked that directions be issued to ministers and administrative secretaries to ensure that all reports and recommendations of SVC are dealt with without delay.
The Governor said the SVC was established with the objective of promoting honest functioning of the administration and there can be no acceptable basis for the its reports not being given full and timely attention.
Earlier this month, the state Chief Vigilance Commissioner, Kuldeep Khoda, had twice met the Governor, who had asked the officer to inform him about significant recommendations made by SVC and the state government's action thereon.
