Recently, N C Hills ( North Cachar Hills), now known as Dima Hasao District has seen major scams amounting thousands of crores and it has surely put present ruling Congress Government on back foot. The scam is quite simple,
“According to the Finance Department of the State Government, Rs 151 crore, Rs 40 lakh and Rs 11 thousand were released to the Council’s eight departments within the 26 months. But the audit team has found that Rs 424 crore 4 lakh 43 thousand has been released by the State government, which is Rs 272 crore 64 lakh and 23 thousand more than the account presented by the Government.”
Most appalling part is, CM of Assam had always denied any such sanction and incidentally the CM has the Finance portfolio too!
