Assam peasant leader Akhil Gogoi on Monday lashed out on the BJP-led Assam government into the alleged coal scam in the state and filed an FIR, seeking a probe against several ministers, bureaucrats, police officials into the scam.
The farmer leader alleged that Assam has lost huge revenue after coal in transportation of coals from neighbouring state Meghalaya.
“Several ministers, bureaucrats of the state government, police officials, political leaders are allegedly involved in the scam. Every coal-laden truck had carried overloading coals from Meghalaya, but proper tax has not been collected. There are many chances of the state transport department, tax department, police officials being involved in the scam,” Akhil Gogoi said.
The Assam peasant leader also alleged that, many trucks had carried overloading coals from Meghalaya to Assam without proper challan.
