�Silchar civic board fund crunch due to Cong�

By Correspondent

SILCHAR, June 9 � Responding to the allegations about the fund crunch at the Silchar Municipal Board, made by Silchar MP Susmita Dev and Assam Sports Minister Ajit Singh, veteran lawyer and the newly-elected chairman of the civic board, Niharendra Narayan Thakur on Monday put the blame on the Congress party and the Dev family for the �huge debt.�

Thakur told media persons that there is enough reason to back his claim. �During the tenure of Bithika Dev (2002) and later, during that of Susmita Dev (till 2014), the board ran into a debt worth Rs 22,37,90,096 under various heads,� Thakur said. He added that 14 vehicles, including the car meant for the chairperson purchased by the Congress-led board, were without registration.

Battling with the financial crisis, the new board is striving hard to bring about stability and has even managed to get three of the vehicles registered, Thakur maintained. Former MP and veteran BJP leader Kabindra Purakystha said that the local MP must restrain from making baseless statements. Local MLA Dilip Paul also flayed the Congress in this respect. During Susmita Dev�s tenure, a sum of Rs 15.92 crore was returned because no utilisation report could be sent to the Government. He said that the projects taken up during the UPA Government are being cleared with priority by the present NDA Government and the BJP-led civic board now is committed to the cause of the development of the town.
