SRINAGAR: Jammu and Kashmir Governor Satya Pal Malik on Monday said the big fish involved in corruption won’t be spared and revealed that he knew some families which had made millions while being in-charge of forests.
“I know some families, who were in charge of forests. They have become millionaires. See the bungalows in Vasant Vihar or Maharani Bagh in Delhi of those who worked in the forest department,” Malik said after starting plantation drive at Zabarwan hills here.
He said his government won’t spare anybody involved.
Asserting that there was no political vendetta, Malik said, “The way Anti Corruption Bureau is working, it is natural that some big fish will also be caught.
"Whichever party he belongs to or however big he is, the person will not be spared and taken to task.”
