Land-grab slur on state NCP bosses

Guwahati, Sept. 9: Members of National Kisan Congress (NKC), the frontal organisation of the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP), today alleged the senior state leaders of the party, including state president Dhirendra Deb Adhikari, were planning to grab party property.

The leaders are purportedly going about the plan through a trust formed by some party members. NCP founder and general secretary P.A. Sangma is one of the nine members of the trust.

Assam NKC president Azad Ali told reporters that they had filed a case with the Kamrup sessions judge (case number TS 270/11) on Wednesday against the trust — Sarat Chandra Sinha Foundation Trust — which was registered on June 30 in a city hotel.

Ali alleged that the formation of the trust had been encouraged by a plan to grab the party’s land by some members and it covered only the party’s property at Dighalipukhuri, Hedayatpur and Uzan Bazar in Guwahati, instead of the entire state. “Some clauses of the trust empower its members to sell or mortgage the party’s land, which is not acceptable,” he said.

Ali said a few days ago, the members of the trust had sought permission from the Guwahati Metropolitan Development Authority to erect a building on the plot located near Dighalipukhuri.

Refuting all the allegations, Adhikari said Ali, whose term as president of the NKC state unit had ended three years ago, had become rebellious after he was not accepted as a member of the trust. “Earlier, Ali was expelled from the post of the party’s general secretary for not abiding by party rules. He is now just a member. Whatever he is doing is for his personal gain and all allegations against us are false.”
