Sourcing its information from the report of the CAG for 2008 - 09, the NPCC has pointed out numerous irregularities in different departments such as home, urban development, food & civil supplies and NPWD (R & B). The NPCC has also attacked the DAN government for violating all democratic norms in the appointment of members of the advisory committees of various municipal councils and town committees.
NPCC, media cell chairman, Dr. K. Hoshi said the CAG report tabled in the recent Budget session amply indicated that the huge deficit gap of Rs. 570.70 crore (projected to end with Rs. 570.91 crore at the end of July,2010) was the result of gross financial indiscipline and irregularities accumulated cumulatively within seven years by NPF-led DAN government.
In the home department, under Police Modernization Program/Modernization of Police Force (MPF), Dr Hoshi said the CAG report revealed that Nagaland being under “A” category of threat perception was entitled to 100% Central assistance for implementation of MPF.
He said modern facilities like satellite-based integrated Police Communication Network, Common integrated Police Application System and Forensic Science Laboratory were not functioning in the State.
In the Urban development, the NPCC said the CAG report revealed pooling of development funds in Kohima at the expense of other districts.
Under the Food & Vivil Supplies department, the NPCC alleged that a total of 2760 MT of Public Distribution System (PDS) rice valued at Rs. 2.29 crore meant for distribution to the Above Poverty Line (APL) beneficiaries of Kohima district was diverted for sale in open market. Dr Hoshi also pointed out the CAG report on NPWD scam under Mokokchung Division where an amount of Rs.3.86 crore was paid to a contractor for fictitious work.
On the issue of appointment of members to advisory committees for various civic bodies, Dr Hoshi said it was a “murder of democracy,” by the NPF-led DAN government which had proved itself beyond doubt that the voices of the opposition and the people were “systematically suppressed.” (Full text on p 4)
