Addressing a discussion in Pilibhit on corruption in schools, when an official said that he did not have the authority to act against corrupt bureaucrats, Maneka narrated an incident where one of the Sonia Gandhi’s relatives used to take advantage of her name.
She also urged them to put up notices outside their offices and assured that a vigilance enquiry would be carried out on all babus.
Pilibhit District Magistrate Masoom Ali Sarwar said, “The minister said that those seeking recognition for schools should directly approach the BSA or a senior authority like the district magistrate. The administration will put up notices in this regard.”
Maneka was in her Lok Sabha constituency and met with district officials, bank officials and farmers regarding schemes run by the Centre. She also met with village pradhans and locals under ‘Gramoday se Bharat Uday Abhiyan.’ She also met with members of Vigilance committees.
