Itagar, May 27: Welcoming the Centre’s move to order a probe into the massive siphoning of centrally sponsored schemes (CSS) fund to the tune of Rs 900 crore, the Aruchal Youth Organisation (AYO) has appealed the Centre to order either a CBI or CVC inquiry on the fincial irregularities. AYO President Biri Joy in a statement here demanded Chief Minister bam Tuki to step down immediately owing moral responsibilities and alleged that “Tuki is not only the chief minister of the state but also the fince and planning minister and there cannot be any kind of fincial mismagement without his involvement”. “We also condemn the recent media interview where the chief minister tried to mislead the people of the state by false statement. Massive corruption and fincial mismagement started after he came to power”, Joy said adding, the RBI records prove clearly and substantiate the allegations against him. “The CM must apologize to the people of the state for baseless and misleading statement”, Joy quipped. He further lamented that the an amount of Rs 3 crore was release by the Centre against APTET qualified SSA teachers, but the salaries have been kept in hold till date even after 9 months of service without salary. Referring to its protest against shifting of Greenfield airport from Karsingsa to Hollongi, Joy alleged that the reason behind the shifting was that the beneficiaries for compensation were only the kith and kins of the chief minister. “Despite serving an ultimatum of 10 days to redress the demands of the union, the state government failed to respond till date,” the president lamented. Reiterating its demand for Tuki’s resigtion, the organization threatened to launch vigorous democratic movement including jail bharo aandolan and bandh calls.
