Imphal, Dec 10:
President of the Manipur Pradesh Congress Committee (MPCC) K. Meghachandra today slammed the present BJP led Manipur Government for its inaction against the siphoning of the public money by officials of RD and PR and contractors.
Speaking to media persons at Congress Bhavan here in Imphal today, the MPCC President K. Meghachandra said that even after knowing that a huge amount under PMGSY has been siphoned by RD & PR no action has been taken up by the Chief Minister besides his promises to make the state corruption free. He said that it is unfortunate that the concerned Minister of the RD & PR had turn down their request for a joint inspection to the site where works were not completed but withdrawn money.
“On March 31, 2020, a total amount of Rs. 8Crore 29 lakhs has been withdrawn for PMGSY work in package Number MN03101( Galkapkot to Gamhui Part 2) and Package Number MN03102 (Galkapkot to Gamhui Part 3) under Thanlon Block of Churachandpur District”, Meghchandra said.
He added that it is clear that there is no completion of the roads after the congress party inspected the site. The Gangte Tribe Council had also verified that money has been withdrawn without constructing the road.
The State Congress President also said that earlier too the MPCC had inspected the 17.5 Km long Noney to Nungdang section of road and they have found that bill amount of Rs. 14 Crore 44 lakhs have been withdrawn without completing the road.
“What is surprising is that when there are complete evidences of non completion of the road and withdrawing the bill amount without completion a 3rd package under the PMGSY has been sanction”, Meghachandra said.
The MPCC President alleged the BJP led government of Manipur of harbouring corruption. He said that Manipur is sinking and will keep continue sinking like the Titanic ship under the pool of corruption if the BJP led government continue.
