Guwahati: BJP Mahila Morcha president Smriti Irani today demanded that culprits behind the Rs 1000 crore development fund scandal in North Cachar Hills district should be punished.

"It is a scandal involving the people's money and so the culprits should be exposed and punished," Irani, here to attend the state executive of the Mahila Morcha, told reporters here.

She lambasted the state government for its alleged overall failure, specially in the law and order front.

On the infiltration issue, Irani said the government's both at the central and state level should take it seriously.

Asked, she said issues of importance for Assam would be discussed in the national executive of the party's Morcha on September 28 in Mumbai.

On the issue of 33 per cent reservation of women, Irani said it was not a question of numbers and wherever the ladies are found ahead of their counterpart they should be given preference.
