Itagar, Jan 31: Rebel MLA Kumar Waii while welcoming imposition of President Rule in the state, urged the Centre to grant special package to the state to bail out of the fincial crisis. “The state has already plunged into deep fincial crisis which is almost impossible to revive. The Centre should grant a special package to the state to overcome the fincial mess created by the former by former chief minister bam Tuki,” Waii told reporters here today. He alleged that amount to the tune of Rs 30-35 crore had been paid to PDS contractors by preparing false bills depriving the employees of their due salaries. However, PDS payment should be made Food Corporation of India, he said. He added that the Thirteen Fince Commission (TFC) had released an amount of Rs. 97 crore under forest grant for the state solely for the purpose of re-plantation trees but the entire amount was siphoned off and distributed to the MLAs. Accusing AICC in-charge V rayansami for taking one-sided role to support Tuki faction and misguide the party high command, the lawmaker from Bameng said that due to which despite several requests they could not meet party chief Sonia Gandhi at Delhi.
“If sigture campaign is conducted among the 26 MLAs of Tuki camp, most of them will sign against the leadership of Tuki,” he claimed
“Four senior advocates who are fighting Tuki’s case at the Supreme Court are charging exorbitant fee to the tune of Rs 50 lakh per hearing. The amounts paid to them are public money which amounts to gross misuse of state’s exchequer. I hope the decision of the constitutiol benches will be out within 10 days,” he said.
“Our Prime Minister is touring several countries campaigning against terrorism but in our state Tuki is using terrorists for his persol gain which need to be thoroughly investigated and Tuki, his former ministers and should be booked under relevant laws,” Waii added.
