Rajasthan ACB withdraws order on naming corrupt officials

Jaipur, Jan 7 (SocialNews.XYZ) After opposition from some quarters in the ruling Congress as well as from the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), the Rajasthan Anti Corruption Bureau (ACB) on Friday withdrew its controversial decree of not releasing the names, photos or videos of persons trapped in corruption cases until the charges against them are proven.

The additional DG of ACB, Hemant Priyadarshi, issued a new order on Friday evening in this regard, withdrawing the January 4 order which had sparked a controversy in the desert state.


On Thursday, Congress MLA from Sangod, Bharat Singh Kundanpur, had slammed Priyadarshi for the ACB's recent decree on naming corrupt officials.

The former minister had written a letter to Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot, saying that the recent order of the ACB challenges the state government's zero corruption policy.

He had also demanded to appoint a 'good' and 'honest' officer as the Director General of ACB.

Priyadarshi had issued the order as soon as he took over the additional charge as ACB DG.

The opposition BJP had also said that the "no names, no photos" order was meant to "shield the corrupt".
