Hyderabad, March 5, 2008

The document released to the media by the retired Vigilance Commissioner Ramachandra Samal rocked the House today with the Telugu Desam Party and BJP staging a walkout while the Left parties registered their protest. However, the Government maintained that there was no need to table Samal's report in the Assembly as it was not official. Raising the issue during the question hour, N Janardhana Reddy (TDP) sought to know why the report of Samal was not submitted to the House and whether the government was willing to fill the vacancy and if so when.

Stating that the document was nothing but a monogram of Samal released to the media after quitting the office and it could not be considered as an official report. Even then, taking the contents in the document into cognizance the Chief Secretary was asked to conduct an inquiry into the contents of the report. Once the government get the feed back, it will present all the reports including the old reports, before the House said the Minister for Higher Education D Srinivas.

The Minister further said that Samal had not submitted any report to the Government during his tenure. He informed the House that the Vigilance Commissioner Office is only an advisory body. He clarified that the Government has no intention to abolish the post and it would be filled soon. As Janardhana Reddy continued repeatedly, the Speaker adjourned for ten minutes and soon after the Assembly reassembled, the TDP and BJP staged a walkout protesting against the Government's failure in presenting the report.
