CM made maiden visit to Taliha
The Chief Minister of Arunachal Pema Khandu during his maiden visit to Taliha announced to handover the investigation of the PDS case to the CBI.
CM Khandu while speaking during his maiden visit to Taliha, said that the chief secretary has been instructed to study the case and prepare all paperwork related to PDS misappropriation for recommendations to the CBI to investigate the case.
Adding to this, he said, “when the Congress was in power it never bothered to investigate people behind such scams and that “it’s only after the BJP coming into power that the state government is serious to unearth the people behind it”.
In December last year, Khandu and 33 MLAs joined the BJP after initially moving to the PPA from the Congress.
Today, Khandu further blamed the Congress rule for the state’s problems, stating that a lack of proper policy made the state government unable to utilize its resources to generate revenue.
He further said, “the state was under Congress rule for a long time and in those day people suffered for lack of attention from the Centre.”
“But now with able leadership in New Delhi, the state is witnessing no dearth of support from the Centre,” he said and informed that prime minister Narendra Modi is likely to visit the state soon and will announce some big projects.
