The Sentinel impact
GUWAHATI, Dec 2: In response to a report published in The Sentinel, the Karbi Students’ Association (KSA) has sought an immediate CBI inquiry into the alleged Rs 3,000 crore scam in Karbi Anglong Autonomous Council (KAAC) and threatened to launch a series of agitation if its demand is not met.
While demanding a CBI probe into the financial scam in KAAC as reported in the paper “The Sentinel” on November 30, KSA president Stalyn Ingti and general secretary Dhireh Teron said, “If the government fails to nab the persons responsible for the financial irregularities, the association will not remain a mere spectator. The students’ organization will launch a series of agitational programmes in support of its demand.”
As reported in this newspaper, while ASDC general secretary Alwin Teron had alleged that a whopping Rs 3,000 crore was siphoned off in the name of rural development alone in Karbi Anglong in the past four years, KAAC member George Millik had called for an independent or CBI inquiry into the financial scam in the district where, he claimed, public money had been misappropriated on a larger scale than what took place in NC Hills district.
