Arrest of all accused in PDS scam demanded
ITANAGAR, Sept 30: The Adi Students’ Union (AdiSU) Itanagar unit has demanded arrest of the 96 accused in the PDS scam including four sitting MLAs and Chief Minister Dorjee Khandu’s son Prema Khandu.
Condemning the way the state Govt allegedly using the investigation as a tool in PDS scam, the union questioned why only former chief minister Gegong Apang is being targeted while the chief minister’s son and four sitting MLAs were moving free.
The law is equal for all and no one is above the law, the union said while lambasting the Arunachal Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC) and Arunachal Pradesh Congress Seva Dal APCSD) for ‘protecting the chief minister by condemning the organizations who are demanding his resignation on moral ground for his son’s involvement in the scam’.
The union further said the Congress party is turning a blind eye to the scam and encouraging corruption, favoritism and nepotism.
The union claimed that that state Govt is trying to confuse the people by giving contradicting statements in regard to prosecution sanction and not responding to the questions raised by the people on the scam. It demanded handing over of the case to CBI immediately.
