With the state government facing embarrassment over the yet-to-be-published report of Bihar Principal Accountant General (PAG), highlighting "rampant misuse" of rail travel coupons between March 2009 and March 2012 by the members of the Legislative Assembly and Legislative Council, the Nitish Kumar government has forwarded the PAG's posers to secretariats of both the Houses for remedial action.
The PAG report, which is in the final stage of preparation, will be made public in February-March next year.
The Indian Express on Tuesday published a report, "Bihar MLAs, MLCs fudge records to cash in on rail benefits: 3 trips in 1 day", on how , among others, legislators availed allowances meant for staying at Patna even when they showed themselves travelling on the same days. The PAG also found 172 legislators took along one co-passenger on 1,522 occasions, in violation of the existing rules.
In charge Secretary, Vidhan Sabha, Laxmikant Jha told The Indian Express: "We have responded to the PAG's posers but cannot discuss the details, which are confidential."
