Itagar, May 12: The People’s Party of Aruchal (PPA) today alleged that the current fiscal mess in the state is mainly due to spending huge uccounted public money unmindfully during elections to buy potential rival candidates.
“Just holding rally to dislodge a popularly elected Govt. to be replaced by another of the same content and character without any committed agenda to root out corruption from the state will have no significant meaning,” said party’s CWC chairman Kamen Ringu in a party meeting here.
“All the political parties, civil rights organizations, who today, seem to be concerned regarding the failing fiscal health of the state must first raise voices against these factors,” said Ringu in an apparent reference to a political rally organized by a tiol political party.“While the political rally organized by the BJP state unit of Aruchal Pradesh against the misrule of Tuki led Govt. in the state is encouraging and laudable, the saffron party must examine deeper into the genesis of this whole issue”, he said.
Secretary General of the party, Kaling Jerang stated, “We all should be equally concerned about the virus of political defections of elected legislators quite rampant in the state. This is a disease which has stunted the growth of a democratic and powerful opposition political party in the state.He called upon BJP to join hands with PPA in getting those defected PPA legislators disqualified as per the 10th Schedule of the Indian Constitution against whom disqualification petitions have been submitted to the Speaker of the Aruchal Assembly.“All the Civil Rights Organizations should equally raise voice against those candidates who had withdrawn their candidatures after negotiating with the present ruling government. The rallies should not be only for wresting the power and change of government but to root out the virus of corruption from the state”, he added.
