Large-scale anomalies in utilisation alleged

By Staff reporter

GUWAHATI, July 22 - Alleging large-scale anomalies in utilization of Central funds for minority development in the State, the BJP, Minority Morcha, Assam Pradesh, today demanded that the Government made public every detail about spending of the funds district-wise.

It also called for making public the details of land owned by the minority waqf board, and how it was serving the cause of the minority populace.

It further demanded that the national register of citizens (NRC) update process that was kept in abeyance following a violence-marred protest last year be re-started all over the State before August 15.

Addressing a press conference, Md Nazmul Alam Laskar, president, BJP Minority Morcha, Assam Pradesh, and Dilip Moran, State vice-president, BJP, and Rajyik Prabhari of the Minority Morcha, said that utter lack of transparency and accountability marked the implementation of Centrally-sponsored projects for minority welfare in the State, and that the people had a right to what was being done with the Central funds.

"There is legitimate doubt in the minds of the people that minority development funds are serving purposes other than their stated objective. Let the State Government make public how the funds are being utilized," Laskar said.

The BJP also expressed serious concern over the worsening law and order in the State including the spurt in crime against women. "It is evident from the recent incidents of crime and violence that the law-and-order machinery has crumbled in Assam. This is evident in diverse spheres such as crimes, extortion by ultras, violence by Naga miscreants inside Assam in border areas, cross-border infiltration from Bangladesh, etc.," Moran said.

Earlier today, the State executive meet of the BJP Minority Morcha adopted several resolutions, calling for treating the State's perennial problem of flood and erosion as a national problem; completing the NRC update process and providing Indian citizens with photo identity cards, stopping of harassment to Indian voters by 'branding' them as D voters; provincialization of all the senior madrassas in Assam and filling up the vacancies; CBI probe into the widespread corruption taking place in NREGs, Brahmaputra Board, agriculture, irrigation, water supply, etc.
