According to the reply, Lokayukta M L Tahaliyani has approached Maharashtra’s Governor Ch Vidyasagar Rao in all these cases. The Maharashtra government has initiated action in barely 1 per cent of the complaints lodged before the Lokayukta in the last three years. “This shows the lackadaisical manner in which the government authorities treat complaints raised before the Lokayukta,” said Ghadge. The Lokayukta disposed of 1,720 complaints at the preliminary stage, ruling there was no ground to proceed. The RTI reply obtained by activist Jeetendra Ghadge reveals that the Lokayukta had recommended action against officials in at least 316 cases.
