Corruption, negligence are deep rooted in hostel wardens and Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandra Babu Naidu has decided to root out the dirt which was residing unattended for several years. Anti Corruption Bureau (ACB) today raided the welfare hostels across the states.
Raids are currently going on in Guntur, Nellore, Anantapur, Kadapa, West Godavari, Srikakulam, Prakasam districts. It is said that ACB is verifying facilities, accounts and food quality in the hostels and is also booking cases on several hostel wardens and other responsible officials. The raids are expected to be completed by afternoon and they will be submitting a detailed report to the Chief Minister upon which Chandra Babu is planning stern action.
