Tezpur MP Ram Prasad Sharma sniffs conspiracy

STAFF REPORTER

GUWAHATI, July 19: After the arrest of his daughter Pallavi Sarma APS in connection with the cash-for-job scam in the Assam Public Service Commission (APSC), the Tezpur MP Ram Prasad Sharma alleged that some elements from his party hatched a conspiracy against him to prevent him from contesting in the next general election. However, rubbishing his allegation, the state BJP president Ranjeet Dass said that law has been taking its own course. Reminding Sharma of the BJP’s motto, ‘Zero tolerance towards corruption’, Dass added that if there are more fraudulent officers in the list, the police will take them in the radar regardless of their inheritance from party rank and files. Meanwhile, the opposition Congress has demanded of Sharma to tender his resignation.
