A Joint Action Committee (JAC) formed by people of Nungba headquarters on Thursday expressed strong dissatisfaction towards DC Noney for allegedly releasing compensation money of Rs 31 crore for widening of NH-37 “in a fraudulent manner to an unknown committee.”
It served a five-day ultimatum to DC Noney and state government to remit, roll back the money to DC Noney’s account again from the unknown committee’s account “that was fraudulently transacted few weeks ago.”
It further demanded to transact the money to the original beneficiaries within five days time.
Failing to do so will invite a wave of public agitation against the DC Noney and state government for the fraud, said convenor of the JAC Ashing Kamei.
A general body meeting was held on Wednesday at Nungba headquarters playground where one member from each family attended to discuss necessary action against the culprits and officials allegedly involved in the issue.
The villagers sought the chief minister's intervention in the wrongful act of releasing funds to the unknown committee instead of transferring the money to the respective rightful beneficiaries.
It is said that some villagers were made to sign on the blank APR forms, and government officials are also suspected to be involved.
