Jharkhand Chief Minister Raghubar Das today said that his government is committed to give corruption-free governance through transparency and accountability. Emerging from the inauguration of new Lokayukta bhavan, Das said, "We have zero tolerance for corruption and several steps have been taken to eradicate it." "Justice DN Upadhyay was appointed as the Lokayukta in February this year.
People of the state have started praising the Lokayukta for disposing 450 cases in just three months," the chief minister said. "If there is good governance, less number of cases would go to court. The state is discharging its duty but assistance of people is also required," Das said.
