Mugli demands action against TAH compensation theft

BOA SIMLA, Nov 22: Arunachal Pradesh Forest Corporation Chairman Talo Mugli has demanded action against those involved in the alleged siphoning off of the compensation fund for the Ziro-Bopi Trans-Arunachal Highway (TAH) project.
Speaking at a BJP meeting here in Kamle district on Thursday, the former minister sought proper investigation into the alleged multi-crore scam, and urged the locals to cooperate with the fact-finding committee, as well as during construction of the highway.
Clarifying his stand on the TAH compensation issue, Raga MLA Tamar Murtem said he had no role in the alleged mismanagement and anomalies “as presumed by some sections of people.”
He said the fact-finding committee constituted by the government has submitted its report on the Potin-Pai Gate and the Joram-Kolorang roads, and would now move on to the Ziro-Bopi road.
Murtem urged the land-affected people to cooperate with the fact-finding committee, and demanded action against those responsible for irregularities and siphoning off of the compensation fund.
Addressing the party workers as resource person, state BJP general secretary Jarpum Gamlin called for re-electing all the BJP candidates from their respective constituencies, so that the benefits of schemes reach the villagers.
He elaborated various government schemes for women, children, and the people living below the poverty line.
Besides the people of Boa Simla, BJP workers and leaders and gaon burahs attended the meeting.
