The protest against corruption by the Arunachal Against Corruption (AAC) entered the eleventh day today at Jantar Manta, New Delhi and wants Prime Minister Narendra Modi to give them a five-minute audience.
AAC chairperson Toko Sheetal speaking at dharna expressed her gratitude to the participants of foot march rally from Naharlagun to Itanagar said the movement is not confined only to and in Arunachal Pradesh but the country as a whole.
She revealed that she received an anonymous letter from a citizen in New Delhi detailing about the involvement of a senior engineer in corrupt practices in the hydro-power project in the state.
Sheetal said that person offered support to their cause and posted Rs. 3000 with the letter to help the ACC. “The team has decided to keep the money in original at the archives of the museum at Itanagar,” she added.
A press release from ACC said the dharna began with a 30 second silence to condole the untimely demise of MLA from 1-Lumla constituency Jambe Tashi and expressed their support to his dear ones.
The ACC further expressed its gratitude to the members of Nari Shakti, Arunachal Bachao Andolan, Capital Youth Organization and Pro-Dam Movement of Arunachal for taking part in yesterday’s rally.
