Itanagar, Nov 19 (UNI) The Nyishi Federal Council (NFC) and All Nyishi Youths' Association(ANYA) has decided to "expose" all public servants, agencies and individuals involved in corruption thereby possessing disproportionate assets in the state.
Addressing a joint press conference here today, NFC executive secretary Patey Tatung and ANYA president Yuwa Bullet said the associations during a one-day special session on November 17 last resolved to expose corruption cases so that the state government could initiate appropriate steps to contain the situation.
Among the three-pronged strategy adopted by Chief Minister Dorjee Khandu immediately after his oath-taking ceremony, the state government has failed to contain corruption in the state, they said and added that the state government deserve appreciation for fulfilling the other two strategies namely streamlining of public distribution system (PDS) and revival of Cooperative Apex Bank.
Both the organisations also criticised the Nyishi Elite Society (NES) and All Nyishi Students' Union (ANSU) for their failure to prevent state Chief Secretary Tabom Bam from resuming his service, who joined his duties a few days back after the recent confrontation with Nyishi community on nomenclature change issue.
''We are shocked at the report of resumption of duty by the CS before the outcome of the report. The silence maintained by ANSU and NES, who raised the issue is doubtful and we demand resignation of both the presidents,'' the leaders added.
While urging the CS to remain away from office until the report was submitted by the said committee, the NFC and ANYA had set a deadline of seven days for the government for the removal of the chief secretary for his "anti-Nyishi attitude" and threatened to go on rigorous democratic movement if the demand was not met.
Meanwhile, NFC and ANYA had constituted an action committee with NFC spokesman Takam Padu as its chairman to go into the details of the entire gamut of the issue and to submit its report within a month.
