All hopes of action against the corrupt by the government are now getting belied because there has been too much delay in making the list public, and announcement of action against these officials.
It has been two months since the first list was made public but since then no action has come from the state government clearly sending the message that fight against corruption is likely to face a slow death.
To save themselves from action the corrupt officials are trying their level best, and pulling all strings to avoid the ignominy of being axed from government service. Apart from this the tainted officials are also being reported to have paid huge sums to politicians for saving themselves. The big sharks as such who are flush with money, resources, land, and other ill-gotten gains as such are likely to escape the anti-corruption drive whereas the small fish may get fried in the second list of corrupt officials against whom government plans to take action.
Source also claim that if the government is unable to take action against the high and mighty then it would send a very wrong message to the electorate that Mufti government is no different from the previous regime which was voted out because it was steeped in corruption.
