ACC hotline gets huge response in 5 days

BSS

The toll-free Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) hotline number 106, dedicated to receive graft allegations directly from the people, has got a hue response from across the country in only five days after its inception.

The hotline received several thousands of graft allegations, mostly relating to bribery in the land offices, ACC Deputy Director and Public Relations Officer Pranab Kumar Bhattacharya told BSS yesterday.

“We have already received several thousands of allegations of corruption and irregularities immediately after the introduction of the hotline five days back. Most of the allegations are related to bribery in the land offices across the country,” he said.

He added that the ACC hotline has also received many allegations of graft and irregularities relating to the social safety net programmes such as TR (Test Relief) and KaBiKha (Kajer Binimoye Khadya-Food for Work).

People from different parts of the country also phoned for registering complaints about acquiring illegal wealth by different persons and personal disputes over ownership of land, he said, adding that in many of the cases the allegations are not specified.

The ACC has only taken into consideration the allegations which are scheduled offences as per the laws, he said.
