Rally demanding CBI probe into corruption in Arunachal Pradesh

Rally demanding CBI probe into corruption in Arunachal Pradesh
A CORRESPONDENTITANAGAR: The Arunachal Bachao Andolan Committee (ABAC), in collaboration with All Capital Complex Youth Welfare Association (ACCYWA), organized a rally demanding the State government for immediate arrest of one Akhilesh Pratap Singh and CBI enquiry into the corruption charges against CM Pema Khandu from Akashdeep to IG Park near here on Friday. Following the failure to address the demand within 14 days, the association has threatened democratic movements, which will also include a bandh call. Speaking to the reporters, ACCYWA president Ashok Yangfo said that Khandu should immediately engage CBI or ED on corruption charges levelled by the Arunachal Against Corruption (AAC) on misappropriation of government funds and disproportionate assets acquired by the CM. Yangfo claimed that the entire government works being some or the other way at Tawang is being carried out by the firm of CM or his family. Depriving the youths of the state, the CM who represents the entire public should refrain from such individual activities and pave a way for others too. "When he (CM) can recommend CBI enquiry into APPSC question paper leakage fiasco, why is he reluctant for the corruption allegation levelled on him? The CM should immediately call upon CBI and ED into the investigation on the allegations," he added. Meanwhile, ACCYWA General Secretary Lomjum Boje said that Akhilesh Pratap Singh, who is from Uttar Pradesh, has allegedly used derogatory remarks on Toko Sheetal. Singh has also disrupted the foot march by the team of AAC. Therefore, he should be immediately arrested responding to the FIR registered at the police station. He also said that the State government should deliver justice to the AAC by accepting their demands. Despite days of protest in New Delhi by the team and a foot march from Aruanchal to New Delhi, the State government is yet to respond to their demands.Also Read: Ishaq Dar returns back in the country post as Pakistan Finance MinisterAlso Watch:
