Momentum Jharkhand enhanced Jharkhand’s status, says ex-CM
Mail News Service
Ranchi, Jan 10: Former Chief Minister Raghubar Das Friday challenged Hemant Soren government to get allegations of corruption against him probed by any agency. He termed the allegations as baseless.
Replying to allegations of corruption worth Rs 100 crore leveled against him by Jan Sabha’s Pankaj Kumar Yadav, Das said, “Momentum Jharkhand Global Investors’ Summit brought Jharkhand prominently on the world map. Investors all over the world came to know about Jharkhand’s suitability as an investment destination. They came to know about the ease of doing business in the state, availability of resources and basic infrastructure.”
Das spoke while attending a programme organized in the state Capital to pay tributes to Justice LPN Shahdeo. He said there was no scam in Momentum Jharkhand.
“Momentum Jharkhand was organized with full transparency. Many companies invested in Jharkhand after the Global Summit. Many youths of the state got employment after the event. Anyone can complain. Now it’s their (JMM’s) government. They can get the allegations investigated. I have nothing to worry about,” said the former CM.
Yadav, the Jan Sabha functionary, lodged a complaint against Das with the Anti Corruption Bureau (ACB) yesterday. He also accused former Jharkhand Chief Secretary Raj Bala Verma, former Principal Secretary to CM Sunil Kumar Barnwal and several other state bureaucrats of involvement in the scam and demanded a thorough probe.
