Itanagar: Sanction for prosecution of 44
public servants allegedly involved in the multi-crore PDS scam
as sought by the Special Investigating Cell, would be given
after receiving a written order from the Gauhati High Court,
Arunchal Pradesh Chief Minister Dorjee Khandu said today.
"We are yet to receive any court order in writing from
the court," Khandu told a press conference here.
"When the SIC could arrest former chief minister
Gegong Apang without any prosecution sanction why not others?"
The Chief Minister’s reaction came in response to
media reports that the state government was allegedly trying
to save some people involved in the scam.
Rejecting any threat to his government after the
arrest of Apang, the chief minister said that the ruling
Congress could easily approach the party high command for it.
"With an over two-thirds majority, the Congress need
not go for a no-confidence motion to remove me, it can
directly go to the party high command," he said.
"There is no such political development in the state
as reported by the media," he said.
