On the other hand, the Arunachal BJP has issued a statement that says, the state government has referred the PDS scam in Arunachal Pradesh to the CBI ‘for fair and independent investigation’ on Friday.

The statement said, “It is hoped that the CBI will thoroughly investigate and book the culprits who have been continuously taking the state and its people to ransom. He (Pema) has the mandate from the highest level in the party, his colleagues in the government, state level party workers, and the common people to take this bold step, and the BJP backs him with the utmost support”.

The state body of the saffron party termed it as the beginning of ‘the BJP government’s war against corruption.’ The statement by the state body of the party read, “Our government, since day one, has been committed to root out corruption from the state, so that it can grow and reach at par with other developed states”.

As per the statement released by the party, it also said it has handed over all recruitment to the Arunachal Pradesh Public Service Commission. The reason behind the step taken, as per the party, is to ensure free and fair recruitment. It has cancelled illegal recruitment and regularization of jobs in various departments and has handed over the investigation of such corrupt practices in certain departments to the SIC. The State BJP said that it introduced digital transaction and DBT system for all the welfare schemes to target individual beneficiaries.
