Meghalaya: CBI may soon take action against Meghalaya Governor Satya Pal Malik. The Central Government has given permission to the CBI to investigate. This case is related to the offer of bribe to him while he was the Governor of Jammu and Kashmir. The Jammu and Kashmir administration had recommended a CBI probe for a fair investigation into the matter.
The CBI will investigate corruption in awarding contracts for the Jammu and Kashmir government’s Employees Health Care Insurance Scheme to Reliance General Insurance Corporation. The CBI is also likely to investigate corruption in awarding civil works contract for Kiru Hydroelectric Project to a private firm.
300 crore bribe offer
Let us tell you that former Jammu and Kashmir Governor Satya Pal Malik had recently claimed that he was offered a bribe of Rs 300 crore in exchange for cleaning the files of the RSS leader and Ambani. This claim of Satyapal Malik created a sensation.
The deal was canceled by the Governor himself and
Now the government has approved the recommendation of the Jammu and Kashmir administration that the allegations be probed by the CBI. Satyapal Malik said he was offered Rs 300 crore to clear the file, but he scrapped the deal. However, while praising PM Narendra Modi, Malik said that at that time the PM had asked him not to compromise with corruption.
In October 2018, when he was the governor of Jammu and Kashmir, he canceled a group health insurance agreement with Reliance General Insurance for employees suspected of misconduct. At the same time, two days later, the governor approved the termination of the agreement with Reliance General Insurance and sent the matter to the Anti-Corruption Bureau for investigation.
