Maharashtra: Chief Minister come under Lokayukta

Jan 30, 2019 13:28 IST

The Devendra Fadnavis-led Maharashtra government plans to bring the chief minister under the jurisdiction of the Lokayukta, but with a few riders. The state cabinet has cleared a proposal to allow complaints to be filed against a sitting chief minister. The Lokayukta, however, cannot conduct a probe against a sitting CM. Currently, section 7 of the Maharashtra Lokayukta and Upa-Lokayuktas Act, 1971 allows the anti-corruption ombudsman to scrutinise elected representatives such as ministers, local body members and public servants, but exempts the CM.
