Ranchi: Cautioning Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM) supremo Shibu Soren against constantly pointing fingers at the functioning of state government, Jharkhand Vikas Morcha (JVM) leader, Babulal Marandi, said the veteran leader should check his statements otherwise the whole Arjun Munda Cabinet would be behind bars.

Addressing mediapersons here on Sunday, the former Chief Minister said, Soren has already bear the brunt of corruption and if JVM comes into power, corrupt elements will have to face the consequences.

“One year tenure of the state government has proved to be a complete failure. In this regard, a memorandum demanding CBI probe has been submitted to Governor, Dr Sayyed Ahmed," Babulal Marandi said.

Alleging the Munda government for misusing funds allocated for the construction of roads in the state, Marandi said, "Standing on the foundation of wrongdoings, state government has all plans to mint money from the amount of Rs 3666 crore allocated for the construction of Adityapur-Kandra, Ring Road and Kandra-Chaibasa road."

He also alleged that the government has committed financial anomalies through joint venture of private company IL & FS in the construction of 107 kilometere road stretch.

Planning to take the road construction issue to the court, Marandi said, "For the construction of 15.5 kilometre road stretch from Adityapur to Kandra, an amount to the tune of Rs 16 crore per kilometre has been spent, whereas for Mahulia-Barahgoda road, Rs 7 crore is spent for every one kilometer.”

Further citing corruption charges against Munda government, the JVM leader stated that the files related to corruption and scam are gathering dust in the CM's office.

He said there is no account of file related to tourism scam for the past one year, the sub-leasing issue of Tata Steel is pending from December 6, 2010.

“Even after making an advance payment of Rs 60 crore on agriculture seed scam and International Checkpost construction, government's silence tells the rampant corruption in the state,” Marandi added.
