VISAKHAPATNAM: Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu on Thursday announced `5 lakh ex gratia to the bereaved family of DCIL employee N Venkatesh who committed suicide  due to depression caused by the disinvestment proposal of the DCIL of the Central government. The Chief Minister was the chief guest at the inauguration ceremony of ACB building here at the Chinagadili area.  

On the occasion, the CM said that since its inception the DCIL was making profits and it is not advisable to privatise the DCIL at all. “I am going to write a letter to the Prime Minister requesting him to drop the disinvestment decision. Now, we are giving `5 lakh compensation to Venkatesh’s family and will discuss with the DCI chairman on ex gratia soon,” said the CM. 

The CM warned the employees about the corruption charges. “Corruption is cancer. We will not spare anybody on corruption charges. If anybody is found guilty stringent action should be taken. After TDP came back to power in the state, corruption came down with the effective implementation of Biometric and online systems. In the future also we are going to take serious steps to curb corrupt activities in the governance. One ACB court would be opened at Rajamahendravaram soon,” he said.
