CBI enquiry demanded against Siddeque Ahmed

KARIMGANJ, Nov 5: The Trinamul Congress has demanded a CBI enquiry into the corruption allegations against south Karimganj MLA Siddeque Ahmed. A memorandum signed by Trinamul Congress party president Dulal Paul and working president of the party was submitted to Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi through the Karimganj deputy commissioner.

The Trinamul Congress stated in the memorandum that Ahmed has allegedly siphoned off huge amount of money meant for the development of the district and amassed huge movable and immovable property. It has also been alleged that Siddeque Ahmed along with Karimganj Zila Parishad (KZP) Mantaj Ali had been playing around with the religious sentiments of the people of the district in order to divert attention of the administration from their corruption related issue.

Moreover, in view of the Ainakhal incident that took place in Hailakandi district on November 1 following the call of a rally by the Progressive Students Youth Forum, the Trinamul Congress apprehended participation of more than a hundred Bangladeshis along with Siddeque Ahmed and Mantaj Ali. The Trinamul Congress, in the memorandum, stated that the supporters of Ahmed and Ali were shouting anti-government slogans and were deliberately using abusive language. Communal slogans were also being shouted, alleged the memorandum.

The Trinamul Congress has, therefore, sought intervention of the Chief Minister into the matter in order to maintain peace and order in the district. The Karimganj District Committee of the Trinamul Congress also expressed its concern over the present scenario in the district as well as in Barak Valley in view of the irresponsible attitude of a section of political elements.
