KMSS dares Himanta for open debate

GUWAHATI, June 26 – Krishak Mukti Sangram Samiti (KMSS) today dared Health Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma to make public the list of assets he has in his own name and in the names of his wife and other relatives. It has also called for arrangements to bring the call records of all the phones used by the Minister since 2001 under the purview of the CBI investigation on the multi-crore NC Hills scam.

It has also dared the Minister to take part in an open debate with its leaders at the Guwahati Press Club on the issues concerning the NC Hills scam and the assets of the Minister.

In a statement here, the voluntary organization also made it clear that its secretary Akhil Gogoi did never allege that Health Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma had accepted a gift from the NC Hills scam tainted officer RH Khan in the form of a luxury car.

The KMSS said that its secretary Gogoi had in fact demanded a clarification from the Minister on the allegation made by several quarters that he had accepted a luxury car from RH Khan.

It also reiterated the demand for expanding the scope of the CBI enquiry into the multi-crore NC Hills scam by allowing the investigating agency cover all the departments in its probe in to the gross financial irregularities in the autonomous council of the Hills district.
