BJP Alleges Corruption in Arunachal Power Project BJP in Arunachal Pradesh has accused a Congress MLA of resorting to corruption while executing a power project in remote Anjaw district bordering China.

The party in a statement today alleged that Congress MLA Karikho Kri has misused public money and misled the state government along with AICC secretary in charge of Arunachal Pradesh Sanjay Bapna about the actual status of the Hatipani hydel project in the district.

The 2x50 kilowatt project was inaugurated on January 2 by Rajya Sabha member Mukut Mithi.

"Surprisingly, as per the list of existing hydel stations under department of hydro power development (DHPD), the project had been commissioned in 2009," Anjaw district BJP president Banim Kri claimed.

He said he visited the site on November 10 and found that equipments like turbines, penstock, etc were lying neglected.

During an interaction with the villagers of Goiliang, he was informed that a portable generator had been used to supply electricity to the entire circle headquarters on the day of the inauguration.

"Right from the very next day, there was no electricity in the area and the same is true to this day," the BJP leader said and demanded a CBI inquiry to unearth the exact magnitude and extent of corruption.
