Shillong: Meghalaya chief minister Conrad K Sangma on Monday said the state government is yet to get the names of those who will head the independent inquiry into the alleged corruption charges and other irregularities in Meghalaya Energy Corporation Limited (MeECL).
Sangma said they want to ensure complete independence for the inquiry. Hence, the Government is looking at diverse names of people who will be in the panel.
“We want to get diverse names so that inquiry will be independent in the true sense,” added Sangma.
The inquiry will be headed by a retired judge and two members from the administration, a retired officer, and a technical person.
The terms of reference for the inquiry will include different types of tenders from MeECL for central and state schemes. It will also look into different types of manpower issues like the appointment and other irregularities in the human resources division.
It will also look into allegations of power theft as well as the overall AT&C losses. The inquiry will look into work done in the last 10 years since the inception of MeECL, and the inquiry committee will get a time frame of 4-6 months to submit a report.
