Caught between Allegations Of 450-Crore Scam: Minister Kiren Rijiju

Union Minister Kiren Rijiju must resign because there is “audio proof” and other evidence that he facilitated a 450-crore scam embedded in a huge hydro-electric project in his home state of Arunachal Pradesh, the opposition Congress said today. Earlier this morning, Mr Rijiju, who is the junior Home Minister vociferously denied the charges and also told NDTV that the Prime Minister’s Office has not sought any explanation from him.

Satish Verma, the Chief Vigilance Officer with the firm, had said earlier that the government was in danger of being gypped of nearly 450 crores because it was being presented with inflated and fictitious bills for the removal in trucks of large stones and boulders for the construction of a dam in Mr Rijiju’s constituency.
