ADC Tamenglong accused of fund swindling
IMPHAL, 5th Oct: Several social activists based in Tamenglong district have alleged ADC Tamenglong of misappropriating funds sanctioned under 14th Finance Commission and 3rd State Finance Commission for taking up various development works in the district.
Addressing a press meet at Manipur Press Club here on Saturday, social activist Wichamdinbou Pamei said that the government has been releasing funds sanctioned under 14th Finance Commission and 3rd State Finance Commission to ADC Tamenglong for implementing various development works in Tamenglong which is lagging behind in many areas.
He said that an RTI was filed and a spot verification was conducted to ascertain proper execution of development works including construction of waiting shed, IVR, school renovation, sanitation and drinking water, which were supposedly taken up in different parts of the district but none of the works have been executed.
Charging ADC Tamenglong of misusing a staggering amount of Rs 10,52,20,360 crore without executing any of the development works, the social activist informed that a memorandum has been submitted to TA & Hills minister urging the latter to initiate suitable action against the ADC as per law.
He appealed to the government to look into the matter seriously and implement various development works deserved by people of Tamenglong district without any corruption.
