The Trans-Arunachal Highway Land Affected People’s Forum Kamle District and Upper Yachuli (Ziro to Bopi) on Monday served a 10-day ultimatum to the Arunachal Pradesh government, demanding immediate re-verification of the 157 km Potin-Bopi stretch of the TAH.
Interacting with media in Itanagar on Monday, the forum’s president, Dinesh Maga, said that re-verified and beneficiaries’ list from Ziro 12 km to Bopi should be displayed at the office of the Deputy Commissioner of Kamle district within 10 days.
Maga also said that failure to do so would invite a series of agitations, including phase-wise shutdown in districts.
The forum said the State Government has hurt sentiments of the left-out and deprived beneficiaries, especially of Kamle district, by conducting re-verification from Potin to Ziro Anya Gate only.
Asserting that re-verification on only the Potin-Anya Gate stretch was injustice towards them, the forum claimed that the State Government had so far not entertained the participation of the Kamle Deputy Commissioner in any of the meetings with regard to the Potin-Bopi TAH scam.
The forum said the state government should also hand over all the relevant documents regarding the TAH from Ziro 12 km to Bopi to the Kamle DC and entrust him with the responsibility of re-verification.
The forum also demanded that the authority arrest the officers involved in the multi-crore scam adding that the State Government hand over the case to the CBI for investigation.
Notably, two officers and a beneficiary involved in the scam have aready been arrested so far.
