DIPHU, Oct 09: Autonomous State Demand Committee (ASDC) lashed out at the BJP led Karbi Anglong Autonomous Council (KAAC) for distributing costly vehicles among VIPs stating that it is not progress and development at all, instead the amount for each vehicles should be used for providing developmental schemes to the people who are still living from hand to mouth said ASDC propaganda wing member Peter Rongphar in a press statement on Tuesday.
He stated that at a time when so many developmental schemes are yet to be percolated down to the grass root and at a time when so many employees like those in ICDS and Khalasis of PHED and Irrigation Department are yet to receive their salaries or months together, it is necessary for KAAC to undertake austerity drive.
“The ASDC would like to ask KAAC from which fund it is going to bear on the wear and tear of the vehicles including providing fuel and salaries to its driver. Now, instead of minimizing the expenditure, the KAAC is spending lavishly on the lifestyle of the VIPs of KAAC. Will they draw TA & DA? Are they entitled to enjoy all those perks? The KAAC should answer,” the press statement said.
Talking about the recent attack to former C-in-C of DHD Pronob Nunisa few kilometres away from Diphu Town by unidentified gunmen, ASDC claimed that it is the reflection of the deplorable law and order situation of the BJP led government.
“The attackers might have used homemade weapon instead of using sophisticated weapon to avoid the attention of the government. All is not well on the law and order front despite the big claim of the BJP that peace has prevail. Nevertheless, the incident has call for detail and proper investigation,” the statement said.
