DIMAPUR, AUGUST 13 (MExN): The People for Democratic Rights (PDR) has written an open letter to the Nagaland Lokayukta seeking clarification as to the process by which the organization can officially communicate with it.
A press release from the PDR informed it had emailed the Lokayukta on July 20, 2019 regarding the investigation/inquiry started by then State Vigilance Commission in the Legal Metrology & Consumer Protection (LMCP) Department.
“Almost a month now, the PDR has not received any responsive email from your office either affirmative or negative,” it said.
The PDR said that its email pertains to the willingness of the organization to “share more information and inputs on the serious issues of corruption, nepotism, irregularities etc into the ongoing investigation with a simple intention yet with strong conviction to provide additional documentary proofs and evidence which might be of help to the Lokayukta in its investigation.”
It asked the office of the Lokayukta to clarify as to whether any official communications has to be strictly through written letter in hard copies to be submitted in person or whether it can also be entertained through emails and any other means.
“PDR has been patiently waiting with the hope of a fair-inquiry outcome into the inquiries initiated by then Vigilance Commission in the LMCP and Tourism Departments. In the event, any of the inquiries into the two Departments have been completed, PDR will definitely re-submit the case/issue, if found unsatisfactory, and will explore all available means at all levels both state, centre and judiciary to see that fair and just inquiry has been conducted,” it asserted.
