ACAUT Nagaland has welcomed the prosecution sanction granted against the two retired IAS officers by the Nagaland Lokayukta for allegedly issuing work order for the project “Post Harvest Management of Horticulture crops” in six districts of Nagaland amounting to Rs.717.90 lakh. ACAUT Nagaland through its media cell expressed astonishment that the work order was issued within four days without technical approval and the first instalment of Rs.241.30 lakh was released. 

It said that the prompt approval and the haste withdrawal of cash bypassing procedural requirements was “a clear indication of the nefarious nexus between the technocrats, bureaucrats and politicians for their own vested interest.”
ACAUT asserted that red tapism on genuine welfare projects have resulted in their lapse as it did not give the responsible officials enough inducements and expected returns.
Further, ACAUT alleged that the said projects implemented in the six districts were made on private lands instead of government procured lands exposed “a sinister design” to hand over the projects to “certain privileged class of people” once the implementation part was over.  
ACAUT has demanded that exemplary punishment was awarded as deterrent after the indictment of the accused and collaborators. Unless justice was served, ACAUT said the “cyclical corruption” would spiral out of control.
