APCC advises CM to step down over law and order situation

ITANAGAR, Jun 12: Stating that the law and order situation in the state is deteriorating by the day, the Arunachal Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC) on Tuesday advised the chief minister to step down if he is unable to control the situation.
“The people of the state are now living with fear psychosis as the state has witnessed several incidents of rape and murder cases, kidnapping, atrocities on women and girls, and theft,” said APCC vice president Minkir Lollen in a release.
“The recent abduction and rape of a 17-year-old girl of Doimukh circle, the vandalization of the animal husbandry & veterinary director’s official residence in Nirjuli, the assault on a person by a group of miscreants on 4 June, the attack on a person with daos, causing grievous injuries, on 9 June in Padu village in Mariyang subdivision are matters of serious concern which indicate total failure of the BJP government to maintain the law and order situation in the state,” Lollen said.
He also said the All Kra Daadi District Students’ Union’s allegation of misappropriation of untied fund in Kra Daadi district was “the result of sanctioning and releasing untied fund in the middle of the fiscal yearend month (March).”
Lollen said the APCC had submitted a representation to the chief secretary on 26 March, seeking his intervention to stop the release of untied fund of Rs 221 crore in the middle of the fiscal yearend month.
“But, despite strong opposition by the APCC on the release of untied fund, no action has been initiated by the chief secretary, as a result of which there is huge misappropriation of untied fund meant for the welfare and development of Kra Daadi district,” he said.
The APCC demanded that the state government constitute an SIT to investigate the allegation of misappropriation of fund by the Kra Daadi deputy commissioner.
