Hemant Soren orders probe into alleged corruption in new assembly building construction


JMM leader Hemant Soren


Ranchi: Jharkhand CM Hemant Soren on Thursday ordered an Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) probe into the alleged financial irregularities in the construction of the new state assembly and high court following questions on construction quality.

In May, a portion of the false ceiling on the first floor of the assembly building built two years ago for Rs 465 crores, collapsed due to a leakage in the roof. It was inaugurated by PM Narendra Modi on August 12, 2019, 19 years after the formation of the state. The foundation stone was laid by former BJP CM Raghubar Das on June 12, 2015. The new High Court building also came up at the same time. Before the construction of the new building, the state assembly was functioning from the building of a Heavy Engineering Corporation.

"Chief Minister Hemant Soren has given direction to get the investigation done into the financial irregularities in the construction work of the newly created Jharkhand Assembly and Jharkhand High Court by the Anti Corruption Bureau (ACB)," a government spokesperson said.
