All about a booklet

11 Feb 2017 - 11:09am | AT News

A booklet by late Kalikho Pul seems to have unleashed huge storm in the country's political landscape where both Congress and BJP leadership have been maintaining stoic silence raising doubts over the role a section of top politicians.

Written in Hindi My Vichar, the booklet found near the lifeless  former Arunachal Pradesh chief minister, has some untold stories of how a circle of Congress and BJP leaders along with brokers, lawyers have amassed crores of money from the  exchequers within a short spell of time in the poor north eastern state.

According to Pul, his main rival and former chief minister Nabam Tuki made crores of money meant for the poor people under the various schemes like his predecessor Dorjee Khandu. The booklet has clear mention of his successor Pema Khandu who looted the public money to own many properties in the state and outside.

Pul, who was finance minister in the Nabam Tuki government for a couple of months has exposed the entire network to siphon off crores of rupees in the name if procuring rice for the poor people under the public distribution system. He observed that the multi crore scam benefitted both Tuki and Khandu.

He said when he was camping for nearly 13 months in New Delhi, many top political leaders demanded astrological amount if money to help him become chief ministers, which he could not. His consultations with Congress veterans including Ghulam Nabi Azad, Kamal Nath also echoes in his booklet that rattles the political fraternity.

Pul, who was caught in a legal tangle after he took oath as chief minister took strong note of displeasure over the judiciary which dislodged him even after he won the floor test.

But the Congress and BJP leadership have not reacted even after media leaked the booklet available in the court.
