ITANAGAR, Jul 16: There seems to be no sigh of relief for Mechuka MLA-cum-Govt Spokesperson and Parliamentary Secretary for Tourism Pasang Dorjee Sona in connection with the infamous Rs 4 crore issue with the Boh Ramo Bokar (Adi) Elite Society on Sunday reiterating that the local MLA should clear his stand on the allegation.

On expiry of its 15-day ultimatum to Sona to clear his stand at the backdrop of June 30 protest rally against him by MVAC at Mechuka town, the Society president Jony Pinngam, in a statement here, said that the MLA shouldn’t undermine the voice of public of Mechuka sub-division by keeping mum into the issue.

Retreating that the infamous rupees 4 crore issue wherein the MLA is made prime accused has bought bad name to entire Mechuka sub-division, the Society condemned Sona for his alleged involvement and strongly demanded him to clarify his stand within next 10 days.

If at all he had not collected the said amount as alleged by MVAC or the family of late (Kalikho) Pul, he should clarify instead of remaining silent like this, the Society pointed, adding that if received the amount he should immediately return the same to its rightful owner and make a public apology.

Further, asserting that if he cannot clarify himself on the accusation he should immediately resign from the post of MLA on moral ground, the Society stated, adding that failing to fulfill the demand would compel the Society to launch democratic movement against him.

Meanwhile, when contacted, Sona refuted the allegation saying that there is no iota of truth in the allegation and said that he was ready for investigation.

“I have already said and I am saying once again that I am open to investigation, if any, as Rs 4 crore is not a small amount,” Sona said.
