Taking serious note of news report relating to detention of one accounts officer under DRDA Mon, who was detained on suspicion by Assam police at Bokajan June 16 evening with cash totaling Rs.1,11,15,530, the Nagaland Pradesh Congress Committee (NPCC) today demanded DAN government to own moral responsibility and come out with a public statement and disclose the source of “huge cash” and justify the action of its official.
NPCC general secretary (media in-charge) Vaprumu Demo, in a communiqué, today said that a government servant carrying huge cash without any supporting official document or authorization letter was a “blatant violation” of service conduct rules. Demo said that the officer, without any security cover despite carrying huge amount of cash, proved beyond doubt that purported cash transaction was of “dubious nature.”
Stating that in normal practice, Demo said was the contractor who should collect payment from the office counter and not the other way round, the Congress said the accounts officer, who was later released on intervention of Project Director, DRDA Mon clearly pointed to the “involvement of more people in high places.” “The explanation by PD DRDA Mon reportedly through a fax message was far from convincing,” Demo stated.
He also demanded that government should reveal the name of the Contractor or the firm, and also against what work/project the cash was drawn and under what head of account the fund was booked. He further demanded thorough investigation by an impartial inquiry panel to “unearth the whole gamut of the murky dealing.”
