PPA hurls allegation at govt

ITANAGAR, May 5: In a series of allegation against the government, the People’s Party of Arunachal (PPA) has said the many decisions, including the decision to defer the Municipal election were taken by the government without taking into confidence other political parties, elected Panchayat and Municipal representatives and civil societies.
It accused the state of not living up to its slogan of ‘one Arunachal’.
“State is witnessing near collapse of administrative machinery as lawlessness seems to be the order of the day”, the party added.
“The news of National Institute of Technology (NIT) Director Dr Rajiv Kumar Garg tendering his resignation within five months of his joining following alleged threats is matter of serious concern. This is a clear sign of the government losing grip over the law and order subject in the state”, it said while adding that the news of the alleged threat “has shocked citizens of the entire state.”
It also said that there have been series of mysterious deaths and none of the cases have so far been conclusively solved, while referring to the murder of Lt. Ojing Taying (a student leader), and the mysterious death of former MLA late Ngurang Pinch, which still remain unsolved.
It is sad to see that the relatives of the deceased have been left alone to plead for justice with no serious follow-up actions from the government, the PPA stated.
It further said that the government seems to have closed the chapter of the sensational 60-paged suicide note of late Kalikho Pul, where many politicians currently with the BJP team have been mentioned regarding their involvement in high profile corruption cases, like PDS scam and SGRY scam.
The party further alleged gross misuse of the annual state budgetary allocation by diverting it into untied and RE heads.
