The Congress Party has made a wild allegation of corruption in the NEEPCO under Kameng Hydro Power Projects in Arunachal Pradesh. The entire contract works for the main project and for transportation of boulders were allotted when the Congress party was in power. The Congress party is incriminating itself by referring to any irregularities in these projects. Under Rahul GandhI, Congress party and it’s media department have scored many self goals and this is one of such instances.
On November, 2015 the local MP and Union Minister (of State) for Home Affairs Shri Kiren Rijiju was approached by villagers from the project area who were engaged by the contractor for the transportation of boulders. These villagers submitted a memorandum requesting the local MP to help them in getting their rightful dues towards the works carried out by them for the project. The MP has forwarded the petition received from the affected villagers to the Ministry of Power for getting the matter examined. As a public representative, Kiren Rijiju intervened as a local MP to redress people’s grievances purely on merit.
The Chief Vigilance Officer (CVO) concerned, Satish Verma, who has made these baseless allegations against Mr. Kiren Rijiju has submitted these so called Vigilance reports after he has been removed from the post under the orders of the Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) for misdemeanours and dereliction of duty.
Satish Verma is a chargesheeted officer with a dubious track record and continues to work as a political fixer for the Congress party. The allegations made by the CVO against Kiren Rijiju are baseless, malafide and reinforce his shady past. For the Congress party to make allegations based on such flimsy reports reflects its political pusillanimity and desperation.
The BJP categorically rejects these motivated allegations against Mr. Kiren Rijiju with the contempt they deserve.
