A minister in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh has told officials that they could "steal a little", but should not be "robbing" public funds.

Public works minister Shivpal Yadav made the remarks while speaking to officials at Etah district.

Mr Yadav later said he was against corruption and that news channels had shown an edited version of his remarks.

The remarks have caused an uproar in a country which is witnessing a mounting campaign against corruption.

"As long as you work hard and get things done, you can steal a little. But this should not translate into robbery," Mr Yadav was shown on news channels as telling officials at a meeting.

Mr Yadav, who belongs to the governing Samajwadi Party, later blamed the media for filming the meeting without permission.

"Only an edited clip of my comments at the meeting is being shown on the news channels. I was actually discussing ways to check corruption at a meeting with district officials. I am resolutely against corruption", he told reporters.

Mr Yadav said his government had been elected on a pledge to curb "rampant" corruption under the previous government led by the Bahujan Samaj Party.

He said he had taken action against a number of corrupt officials, and it was wrong to think he was condoning graft.

A recent survey said corruption in India had cost billions of dollars and threatened to derail growth.

Note: At least our ministers are not that dumb, they don't go public saying stuff like "it's OK to rape a couple of teenagers once in a while"...or "it's OK to collect bribes from large construction companies" etc...

Thanks for sharing.

Here is the same story from The Times of India.

UP minister Shivpal Yadav tells bureaucrats: Work hard, steal a little

NEW DELHI: Uttar Pradesh chief minister Akhilesh Yadav's uncle and PWD minister Shivpal Yadav has given 'official sanction' to the bureaucrats of the state to indulge in a little bit of corruption.

In a meeting with district officials in Etah on Thursday, Shivpal Yadav told the bureaucrats that it is okay to steal a little if they work hard.

Chairing the meeting of district programme committee Shivpal said, "Maine to usi din PWD walo se khule aam keh diya tha agar mehnat karoge to thodi bahut chori kar sakte ho, dakaiti nahi daloge (I have already told PWD people openly that if you work hard, you can steal a little, but don't behave like dacoits".

"Agar mehnat karoge, jee lagaoge, agar inhe meetha paani de doge to chori kar sakte ho (If you work hard, if you give them water then you can steal)," he had stated.

With his remark drawing criticism from all quarters, Shivpal Yadav hurriedly called a news conference on Friday to explain the context of his statement and control the damage.

He claimed that his comment was not reported in totality and that he made the statement in the context of the previous BSP government.

"What has been reported in the press is out of context. I had stated that the erstwhile government had indulged in largescale corruption, cheating and stealing which, I said, should be stopped hundred per cent," the minister said, adding that the SP government had come to power vowing to end corruption.

When reporters persisted with the questions on his controversial remarks, Shivpal said, "I have taken back those words. So, why are you raking it up. I have always cooperated with the press. I don't know why the media is targeting me".

Training his guns on the media, the UP PWD minister questioned the presence of mediamen in the district review meeting.

He said it is wrong on the part of media to report off the record statements.

Reacting on Shivpal Yadav's remark, former Samajwadi Party leader Shahid Siddiqui said that it is an extremely dangerous statement. He claimed that the Uttar Pradesh PWD minister wanted to bring down the state government.

The mind set of a robber doesnt work on big or small. if the motive is to earn extra by stealing he would start small and go for more and more.

You are allowed to steel, rape, floute tenders, take bribes, attack judiciary & sell public property at discounts without any hindrance in Sri Lanka if you can blame loud the opposition for the same in the past. This has become law by continous practice without any hindrance.
