Dr Mukul Sangma LO written to the Governor demand for Administrator’s Rule in GHADC

Shillong, Sept 15: Dr Mukul Sangma Leader of opposition in the Meghalaya Legislative Assembly today has written to the Governor asking for instituting an enquiry by an independent body and imposition of Administrator’s Rule in the Garo Hills Autonomous District Council.

The Congress leader Dr Mukul Sangma who is also the leader of opposition in the Meghalaya Legislative Assembly in the representation sent to the Governor of Meghalaya said that, there is a serious allegation of rampant corruption that has allegedly taken place in Autonomous District Councils particularly in Garo Hills Autonomous District Council which has been widely carried by both the print and the electronic media.

Dr Mukul also mention that there has been also earlier media reports based on information made available by RTI activists of alleged corruption in GHADC. The allegation are serious in nature and revolves around alleged misappropriation and siphoning-off of crores of rupees from the developmental fund provided to GHADC for the development of backward tribal areas and for the welfare of our poor tribal residents.

It is also irony that the fund released to the ADCs were based on our continuous and productive engagement with the concerned ministries, including the Ministry of Finance, Government of India, for providing special allocation of fund to the ADCs for development and welfare of the people in backward tribal areas.

In view of the fact that the 14th Finance Commission Recommendation did not cover ADCs for receiving of grant under the recommendation of the 14th Finance Commissions unlike for the Panchayati Raj institutions.

The financial mismanagement and alleged corruption in GHADC has also brought untold sufferings to the employees of the council due to non payment of salaries for last two years crippling the functioning of the ADC thus defeating the very purpose of its existence.

“I have also reason to believe that the allegations have enough substance and express my apprehension, based on the inputs received, that a concerted effort is being put for DESTRUCTION OF THE EVIDENCE of the alleged corruption by the people in authority which must be prevented immediately in the interest of the people of the State”.

“I, therefore, urged your honour that, the provision of Para 16 (2) of the Sixth Schedule of the Constitution of India be invoked. An independent enquiry be instituted as per law in the best interest of the people and the State”.

It is further reiterated that delay in action shall facilitate the people involved in the alleged corruption to get off scot-free; embolden corrupt people and thus perpetuate corruption, said Dr Mukul in the representation sent to the Governor today.
