JAC demands CS transfer for fair inquiry
FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT
Itagar, Feb 09: The Jan Andolan Committee of the state BJP in a letter submitted to the Prime Minister of India has demanded immediate transfer of Chief Secretary Ramesh Negi from Aruchal Pradesh for a free and fair investigation into the alleged fincial mismagement charges against him. JAC Chairman Tame Phassang in a statement alleged that it was during Negi’s tenure as Fince Commissioner that the major fincial irregularities and embezzlement had started openly in the state. “To uproot corruption from top to bottom which has become a common practice in Aruchal Pradesh, Negi must be transferred from the state otherwise it will not be possible to conduct a fair investigation. He is involved in every corruption that took place during the reign of bam Tuki government,” Passang averred.
Party’s state Vice President Tayek Goi questioned that if the Chief Secretary was not involved in the embezzlement of funds then how the High Court had ordered a non-bail able warrant against him, the DGP and SP which is a matter of shame for the state.
He further stated that with the imposition of President’s Rule in the state everything has returned to normalcy especially the law & order.
Alleging that that the Tuki-led government in general and the Home Minister in particular had done injustice to police personnel, Phassang further highlighted that the police officers were also not given proper promotions after being in a certain rank for many years and only the salary was increased which was a complete failure of the concerned minister to streamline the matter.
Appealing Governor J P Rajkhowa to put forward the demand for the betterment of the state during the duration of President’s Rule, JAC also urged the concerned authority to look into the bureaucrats and technocrats tenure system alleging that officers stay in the same posted place for their convenience though the allotted tenure is over.
