Dimapur sugar mill seasonal employees has urged Nagaland governor Nikhil Kumar to look into sugar mill VRS scam and take necessary action, as the guardian of the Constitution of India. In a representation to Nagaland governor Saturday, the seasonal employees’ ad hoc committee chairman Visheke and secretary Bhaban Rai expressed surprise on why the “authority neither intended to repay nor prosecute the culprit.” “Why continue to let helpless people suffer in this way for seven long years under this welfare regime?” they queried. Also, recounting the sequence of event, the signatories said as per the information received from the department of industries and commerce, the cheque in the name of Shitovi, amounting to Rs. 1 crore 23 lakh and 3,580 for payment of VRS seasonal employees, was received and withdrawn by the then assistant director of the department Hokishe Assumi, and handed over to the then industries and commerce minister and sitting MP Rajya Sabha Khekiho, as “directed by him.” “However, the chief minister of Nagaland had rejected the peal for prosecution sanction sought by the CBI,” the seasonal employees said, adding that “corruption is equivalent to crime either involved government or church etc.” The signatories pointed out that the person involved in the scam was again contesting the Rajya Sabha election. It also demanded the responsible individual to repay/refund the amount to the employees.
