Peasant body Krishak Mukti Sangram Samiti (KMSS) Monday demanded that Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal, who holds the Home portfolio, be brought into the ambit of investigation in the Assam Police recruitment question paper leak scam, reports News18.
KMSS president Bhasco De Saikia, addressing a press conference said that a probe by the CBI or a sitting High Court judge, and not by the state police, is necessary in the case as, according to him, the entire scandal is the result of a “nexus between the CM, BJP and the RSS”.
“One thing is getting clear that many top police officials are involved in this scam. The police come under the Home department, which is held by Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal. So, he should also be brought under the ambit of the probe,” Saikia said. “As per our information, three parties are involved in this scam. These are Dispur (Secretariat), Hengerabari (BJP headquarters) and Keshavdham (RSS state office),” he alleged.
The report added that KMSS’ jailed Adviser Akhil Gogoi had on Saturday claimed that the question paper leak scam is much bigger than the Vyapam scandal that rocked Madhya Pradesh a few years back, and alleged that the BJP-led state government is involved in it.
