The Lok Satta Party today demanded that the Government invoke the Prevention of Corruption Act and punish the guilty, who caused losses to the Andhra Pradesh Industrial Infrastructure Corporation in its deal with Emaar.

 

Talking to the media, party leaders V. Laxman Balaji, P. Bhaskara Rao and Mrs. S. Manorama said that going by media reports a number of officials and politicians seemed to be involved in the deal.

 

The Government should amend the Anti Corruption Act to include legislators among public servants and facilitate seizure of tainted properties.

 

The Lok Satta leaders pointed out that the Government seemed to be bent upon enriching a few at the expense of the public exchequer, going by deals struck by the AP Mineral Development Corporation and the APIIC.
