MOIRANG, Jun 29: Social activist N Iboton has claimed that there is a great disparity in money received and works done by Kumbi Municipal Council (KMC) in last 5 years as only about 30 percent of the sanctioned amounts are utilised in developmental projects.
Speaking to media persons during a press meet held yesterday at Kumbi, N Iboton said that though RTI has been filed three times about the issue, no concrete response is given by the authorities concerned till date.
Questioning if the remaining percent of the sanctioned amounts have been misappropriated by the Councillors and Members of KMC, he appealed to the Chief Minister to look into the matter at the earliest.
"Give befitting punishment to all who are found misappropriating the public money or make them furnish the lost amount," he further demanded.
