Bihar Youth Congress president Lalan Kumar today held an emergency meeting of its state executive of the wing wherein it was decided that a YC delegation would petition Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, Union Home Minister P Chidambaram and Governor Devanand Konwar for the probe into the report for the period ended on March 31, 2011.
Talking to a news agency today, Kumar described the CAG report of Rs 22,5000 crore irregularities involving non-reconcliation of the Abstract Bill and Detailed Contingent Bill bills, besides loss, theft, defalcation and embezzlement of funds as a revelation of 'the mother of all scams'.
The 'scam' is bigger than the fodder scam during Lalu Prasad's regime, he said adding only an inquiry by an independent agency like CBI would bring 'looters' of public money to justice.
''We will not sit idle and the state Youth Congress will take the issue to a logical conclusion ... Come what may we are not going to tolerate the open loot of public money and will launch a decisive battle for the ouster of the Nitish Kumar government,'' he said.
The meeting decided to launch a 'Maha Dharna' here and in New Delhi to press for the CBI inquiry, Kumar said adding he had directed the YC leaders to ensure participation of youths in Bihar PCC's agitational programme from April 25 to create public awareness about the diversion, misuse, siphoning off of funds and irregularities in implementation of welfare schemes in the state.
Patna: Holding Nitish Kumar government responsible for allegedly perpetuating financial irregularities in the state highlighted by CAG, Bihar Youth Congress will petition the Centre for a CBI prbe.
