NEW DELHI: Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu on Thursday stumped the government’s largest construction agency, CPWD, as he voiced concern over corruption in the organisation. He was the chief guest at the foundation day of the agency. Addressing the employees, Naidu urged them to maintain transparency and accountability.

Naidu said even though it looked “odd” for the VP to talk about the issue, it was important as Prime Minister Narendra Modi waged a war against corruption and a campaign was underway to eliminate it.

“There are two things worrying me about CPWD because I have experience (as a former urban development minister). One, chances of corruption here and there. It looks odd the VP of India is addressing this…but this an important thing as PM has waged a war on corruption. A massive campaign is going on and and it requires to acquire much more momentum,” PTI quoted Naidu as saying.

Naidu was the urban affairs minister and so was boss of CPWD before becoming the VP. “Make CPWD one of the best organisation. We are here for a mission and not for commission,” he said.

Naidu said, “As a minister I saw the files about suspension, increment.... This is not a good commentary on the organisation. There are a few black sheep but the black sheep will be visible. Please see that we do not get into the murky thing”.
