Aizawl: The district committee of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) of Chakma Autonomous District Council (CADC) on Wednesday staged a protest against the alleged financial mismanagement and maladministration in the CADC headed by Chief Executive Member (CEM) Rasik Mohan Chakma.
The demonstration was held at Kamalanagar near the council secretariat building, according to the statement issued by the BJP.
A memorandum has also been submitted to the Governor, demanding the constitution of an inquiry commission to probe into the alleged corruption and irregularities committed by the CADC executive committee, the statement said.
Former minister and National Council Member of BJP Mizoram Pradesh Nirupam Chakma accused the executive committee headed by Rasik Mohan Chakma of indulging “in the same corruptions and irregularities”, which he had protested when MNF was in opposition bench in the council. He alleged that the present executive committee “has crossed all the limits and made the council completely lawless”.
Nirupam Chakma said the council budget was a mere salary budget as over 93 per cent of it is meant for salaries to the employees and no adequate funds were kept for developmental works for the general public.
The present executive committee is facing an acute financial crisis having more than Rs 28 crore deficit as reflected in the budget speech of 2021 – 2022 fiscal and that is why the executive committee is not in a position to fill such huge numbers of vacancies and to make new appointments, he said.
The BJP leader also said the issue of illegal appointments in the council is becoming bigger day by day. He alleged that successive executive committees gave undue favours to their wives, sons, daughters and daughters-in-law in terms of employment, and as a result, all competent and eligible youths were deprived of employment.
