|Cong ultimatum to Arunachal Pradesh Govt on TAH scam|
ITANAGAR, Aug 12 - Arunachal Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC) president Takam Sanjoy has served a 10-day ultimatum to the State Government to grant justice to all victims of the Trans-Arunachal Highway (TAH) compensation payment scam.
“Our party has submitted a memorandum to the State Governor and Chief Minister mentioning about the ultimatum served on Thursday to take follow up actions,” Sanjoy told reporters here.
If justice is not granted within the given deadline, Congress will be forced to launch a series of movement till the goal is achieved, he said. He alleged that a huge amount as compensation had been given to people without land, while land owners were given a paltry sum.
The APCC has reiterated its demand to hand over the case to CBI as the Special Investigation Cell (SIC) of the State Police is “not competent” to probe the scam involving Rs 246 crore, he said. – PTI
