Centre orders probe into alleged embezzlement of funds in Arunachal Pradesh

ADVERTISEMENT
Union Minister of State for Development of North Eastern Region (DoNER) Jitendra Singh has ordered a probe into allegations of embezzlement, misappropriation, corruption and siphoning of government funds to the tune of over Rs.900 crore in Arunachal Pradesh through various Centrally Sponsored Schemes related to Non-Lapsable Central Pool of Resources (NLCPR) and North-Eastern Council (NEC). 
 
Dr Singh took the decision on the basis of a representation submitted by 11 members of the Arunachal Pradesh Legislative Assembly, who alleged that the State Government of Arunachal Pradesh was responsible for misuse and misappropriation of Government of India funds released against projects sanctioned during 2011-12 to 2014-15. 
 
The Minister directed Secretary, Ministry of Development of North-Eastern Region (DoNER) to immediately collect all the relevant information related to these projects and institute an inquiry into the status and progress of these projects. After compilation of the details and examination of the issues raised by the MLAs, comments may be sought from the State Government before deciding further course of action, he said.
 
The MLAs who signed the complaint included Tamiyo Taga, Leader of Opposition in the Assembly, Japu Deru, Deputy Leader of Opposition, Tage Taki, Chief Whip, BJP Legislative Party, Tumke Bagra, Tamar Murtem, Mohesh Chai, Laisam Simai, Tesam Pongte, Kaling Moyong, Kento Rina, and Olom Panyang. 
 
According to an official press release, they alleged that the present State Government had grossly misused and siphoned central funds due to which majority of projects have not been completed and are behind schedule. They further alleged that the funds had been whimsically diverted and used under Non-Plan Heads. This was the reason why the State Government was unable to furnish ‘Utilization Certificates’ against the funds released under the scheme, they said. 
 
The MLAs requested for special audit and inquiry into misuse of Central Government funds.
 
Dr Singh directed the DoNER Ministry officials to immediately take cognizance of the complaints, furnish all the details and fix accountability. He also expressed concern over the fact that the State Government had failed to release the matching State’s share either in full or in part as a result of which as many as 15 projects are running behind schedule and Utilization Certificates were pending in 20 cases, the release added.

CCEA approves power transmission scheme for Arunachal Pradesh, Sikkim

ADVERTISEMENT
The Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs (CCEA), chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, today approved the Comprehensive Scheme for Strengthening of Transmission & Distribution (T&D) Systems (CSST&DS) in Arunachal Pradesh and Sikkim at an estimated cost of Rs.4754.42 crore. 
 
The scheme is to be taken up under a new Central Sector Plan Scheme of the Ministry of Power (MoP), an official press release said.
 
As the intra-state T&D systems in the North-Eastern states have remained very weak, the Central Electricity Authority (CEA) developed the CSST&DS for the North East Region (NER) in consultation with the Power Grid Corporation of the India Limited (PGCIL) and State Governments concerned. 
 
Presently, only five out of 20 districts of Arunachal Pradesh are connected to transmission network at 132/220 KV. The 33 KV system is the backbone of power distribution system in the state. Due to low population density spread over its geographical area of 84,000 sq.km, power demand in Arunachal Pradesh is scattered over large distances. Hence it is necessary to provide 132 KV connectivity in the state for proper voltage management and lower distribution losses. 
 
Similarly, the distribution system in Sikkim mainly relies on 66 KV network, which needs to be strengthened substantially. 
 
The scheme is aimed at strengthening intra-state T&D systems of the two States through 31 new 132 KV sub-stations, 14 substations of 66/11 KV, 2035 km of transmission lines (132 & 220 KV) and 2204 km of transmission lines (33 & 66 KV). 
 
The project would be implemented through PGCIL with its consultancy fee of 1.2 percent of the execution cost. 
 
After commissioning, the projects would be owned and maintained by the state governments. Initially the project was proposed to be funded under Non-Lapsable Central Pool of Resource (NLCPR - Central) of the Ministry of Development of North Eastern Region (DONER). But DONER has conveyed its inability due to budgetary constraints. Hence it is proposed to take it up through a new Central Sector Scheme under the MoP`s budget. 
 
The project is to be implemented within 48 months from the first fund release to PGCIL, the release added.

Polling begins for 6 seats in North-East in second phase of LS elections

Polling began on Wednesday morning in six constituencies in four North-Eastern states in the second round of the nine-phase elections to the 16th Lok Sabha.
 
LS polls: Voting begins in Manipur, Nagaland, Meghalaya, Arunachal Pradesh
Polling began this morning in six constituencies in four North-Eastern states in the second round of the nine-phase elections to the 16th Lok Sabha.
 
Voting began at 7 am and will end at 5 pm. Queues of voters were seen at many polling stations.
 
Elections to the lone Lok Sabha seat in Mizoram, which was also originally scheduled for today, was postponed to April 11 by the Election Commission yesterday in view of a shutdown and poll boycott called by some NGOs and students' bodies against the decision to allow the exercise of franchise by Bru refugees staying in camps in Tripura through postal ballots. 
 
The constituencies that went to the polls today include both Lok Sabha seats in Arunachal Pradesh, both seats in Meghalaya, the lone seat in Nagaland and one of the two seats in Manipur.
 
Polling is being held simultaneously today for 49 seats in the 60-member Arunachal Pradesh State Legislative Assembly. Eleven members, incuding Chief Minister Nabam Tuki, have already been elected unopposed to the assembly.
 
In Manipur, there are 10 candidates, including a woman, in the fray for the Outer Manipur constituency, which has a total electorate of 899,626, including 440919 men and 453,918 women. The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), the Congress and the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) are among the main parties in the contest.

Prominent candidates include sitting Congress MP Thangso Baite, Gangmumei Kamei of the BJP, C. Doungel (NCP), Kim Gangte (Trinamool Congress), Soso Lorho (Naga People's Front), L Gangte (JD-U) and M K Zou (AAP). 
 
Polling for the second seat from Manipur will be held on April 17.
 
In Meghalaya, polling is being held for both Lok Sabha seats in the state -- Shillong and Tura. The two constituencies have 1,567,163 voters, including 776,633 men and 789,189 women.  There are ten candidates in the fray, including one woman.
 
While the Congress is contesting both seats, the BJP and the Communist Party of India (CPI) have fielded candidates in one seat each. The prominent candidates in Meghalaya include former Lok Sabha speaker and NPP chief Purno Sangma and sitting Congress MP Vincent Pala. Sangma is seeking to return to the Lok Sabha after a gap of eight years.
 
There are three candidates for the lone seat from Nagaland, which has an electorate of 11,82,903, including 595,766 men and 581,758 women. The candidates include Chief Minister Neiphiu Rio (NPF), K V Pusa of the Congress and Akheu Achumi of Socialist Party (India).
 
The two Lok Sabha constituencies in Arunachal Pradesh have 759,498 electors, including 378,019 men and 379,474 women. There are 11 candidates in the fray. The BJP and the Congress are contesting both seats.
 
Among the eight candidates for the Arunachal Pradesh West seat are sitting MP Takam Sanjoy of the Congress and former MP Kirren Riju of the BJP.
 
Heavy turnout was witnessed in the first phase of polling on April 7, with about 75 per cent of the voters exercising their franchise in five constituencies of Assam and more than 84 per cent in one constituency of Tripura.
 
The third phase of polling will be held tomorrow, followed by the postponed poll in Mizoram on Friday. The remaining phases of polling will be held on April 12, 17, 24 and 30 and on May 7 and 12.
 
Counting of votes will be taken up on May 16 and all the results are expected to be out by that evening.

Polling for 6 LS seats on Wednesday, Mizoram vote postponed to Friday

Polling will be held in six constituencies in four North-Eastern states on Wednesday in the second phase of the elections to the Lok Sabha, but the Election Commission today postponed the poll for the lone seat in Mizoram to April 11 in view of a shutdown and poll boycott called by some NGOs and students' bodies.
 
Polling will be held in six constituencies in four North-Eastern states tomorrow in the second phase of the elections to the 16th Lok Sabha, but the Election Commission today postponed the poll for the lone seat in Mizoram to April 11 in view of a three-day shutdown and poll boycott called by some NGOs and students' bodies.
 
Elections will also be held simultaneously tomorrow to the 60-member Arunachal Pradesh State Legislative Assembly.
 
The constituencies going to the polls tomorrow include both Lok Sabha seats in Arunachal Pradesh, both seats in Meghalaya, the lone seat in Nagaland and one of the two seats in Manipur.
 
The Commission said that the Chief Secretary of the Mizoram government and the Chief Electoral Officer of the state had brought to its notice that, due to exigencies of law and order, it would not be feasible to conduct the poll in the Mizoram (ST) constituency tomorrow, as scheduled, and had recommended that it be rescheduled to April 11.
 
There will be no change in the hours of polling, which will be from 7 am to 5 pm, the Commission said.
 
The shutdown had, among other things, affected the movement of polling officials to different parts of the state, especially the remote and hilly areas, official sources said.
 
Normal life in the state was affected after six NGOs and some student groups called for the 72-hour shutdown from yesterday and for boycott of the poll to protest the facility of postal ballots extended by the Commission to Bru refugees who had fled to the neighbouring state of Tripura 17 years ago.
 
Most offices, shops and other commercial establishments and other institutins were closed in the state capital, Aizawl, and other parts of the state and most vehicles were off the roads.
 
The Commission is learnt to have assured the agitating groups that, while the process could not be changed this time, efforts would be made in the future to get the refugees to return to Mizoram and cast their votes.
 
Campaigning for these six Lok Sabha seats going to the polls in the region tomorrow and the Assembly seats in Arunachal Pradesh had come to an end yesterday evening.
 
Eleven candidates for the 60-member State Assembly have been elected unopposed, including Chief Minister Nabam Tuki, which means that polling will be held only for the remaining 49 seats.
