Mr. Singh, who represents Sangod Assembly constituency in Kota district, has written a letter to Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot alleging corruption in the State’s mining department. ‘Save govt. from corrupt’ In the letter he has requested Mr. Gehlot to save the government from the “corrupt people” to mark the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi. He also referred to the Chief Minister’s budget speech in which Mr. Gehlot had said his government would work to put an end to “the flowing Ganga of corruption”. The central government wants to repair the highway stretch but the State mining department is raising obstacles, the letter said. He alleged that funds worth ₹208.54 crore have been sanctioned for maintenance work on NH-27, but an assistant engineer of the mining department in Baran is apparently raising hurdles on the directions of the Minister and not issuing the requisite permission letter to the contractor for the maintenance work. “What honesty is there in a department where its head is already corrupt“?, he said in the letter without naming the Minister. The MLA further said in the letter that the contractor himself has narrated his ordeal to him.Mining Minister Notably, Pramod Jain Bhaya, the MLA from Anta area of Baran district is the Mining Minister.
