Itagar, Dec 26: Joining the Aruchal Pradesh Youth Congress (APYC) in spitting venom against Prime Minister rendra Modi for his alleged involvement in corruption during his tenure as Gujarat Chief Minister, the Aruchal Pradesh Congress Seva Dal (APCSD) has sought an explation from the Prime Minister on his involvement in taking fincial favour from corporate houses. The APYC activists on Friday burnt effigy of Modi at harlagun to vent its ire.
APCSD Chief Organizer Kipa Kaha alleged that Modi has been constantly using the phrase ‘Khaunga a Khane Dungaa’ (neither will take bribe nor will let anybody) but himself was taking bribes as the chief minister of Gujarat.
Informing that Congress Vice president Rahul Gandhi has accused the Prime Minister of taking bribes when he was Gujarat chief Minister, Kipa said that it was in the interest of tion, democracy and people of the country that he (Modi) should come forward to explain the allegation and order an independent investigation into the corruption charges.
“The Prime Minister has a habit of delivering long speeches for hours in public meeting and he is not able to come out of the election mode even after two and half years. On the other hand, he is reluctant to participate in the Parliamentary debates because in the public meetings there is always one sided communication, where only he speaks and none asks,” Kipa ridiculed.
Stating that it is on the record of the Income Tax (IT) Department that Modi received money from Sahara Group nine times in six months in the year 2013-14, which was disclosed at a rally in Mehsa (Gujarat) on December 21 last, the APCSD further alleged that the PM out of fear being caught in the matter announced the note bandi (Demonetization) which was nothing but just to divert the attention of the people from his sins and bad governce.
Alleging his role in the Rs 450 crores scam in the Kameng Hydroelectric Project (HEP), the APCSD demanded the PM to immediately drop union minister of state for home Kiren Rijiju from the council of ministers. “The Chief Vigilance Officer (CVO) of NEEPCO Satish Verma has accused several high-profile persons’ involvement in the scam and the matter should be thoroughly investigated,” Kipa added.
