AGARTALA, September 17 (TIWN): "Arrest of School Education Department Cashier made it absolutely clear that the complaints that have been raised time to time by the opposition parties about the looting of Central RMSA funds by the organized corruption are absolutely true. Even many news items published about many scams and now it is the responsibility of the State Govt to ensure proper investigation if some amount of transparency is still left. Only a separate investigation committee led by a sitting judge of a High Court can unearth the truth," with these words Trinamool Congress Chairman Ratan Chakraborty slammed the State govt. Ratan Chakraborty added ," Truth should be unveiled. This RMSA scam is a tip of the iceberg."

Calling the current investigation and police raid in the houses of three top level officials of School Education Department a fabricated and pre-planned drama -   Leader of Opposition Sudip Roy Barman said," Do you call it can investigation? News about probable police raid on three officials' residences have been published much earlier in media. This is clear indication to those officials to remove any kind of documents or money related with this scam. Lions Share of the money in the current scam has gone to ruling party and its associates. And Melarmath is clearly and closely involved with this scam. And the culprits too belong to the  ruling Party’s Employees' organ H B Road wings. This investigation is being done with a purpose of 'Eye wash and the motive is also clear - to give safe guard to the real culprits." Sudip Roy Barman categorically demanded CBI probe in the current RMSA scam.

    Speaking on the same line BJP state President Sudhindra Dasgupta too demanded CBI investigation for the whole episode. Sudhindra Dasgupta told TIWN on Wednesday night , " There is no way to be satisfied with the State govt investigation. We would definitely want CBI probe because it is not only a scam of Rs 3 or 5 crore but a lead to a huge scam. There are many huge big-fishes in this scam. Most of the money from such scams go to party funds. We don't have any faith with State Govt's investigation. Because in this state, no one is punished for corruption and no investigation is made to find out real culprits." Indeed many have already started to raise questions about Wednesday's police raid on the residences of the Addl Director of School Education Department Biswarath Debbarma, Addl Director and State Mission Director Dilip Kumar Debbarma and Dy Director cum Branch Officer(RMSA) Ambalika Datta.

      A top level official in the School Education Department told TIWN," All the three officials have been preinfomed about today's Police raid procedures . Thus, today's police investigation cannot be called a 'raid', it can only be called a 'search' or fake raid. " The official also told that on Wednesday a meeting was scheduled to be held in School Education Department . And Addl Dilip Debbarma too was invited in the Wednesday meeting. And according to TIWN sources it is learnt that Dilip Kumar Debbarma informed the higher officials that he would be late to attend the meeting as he was aware of impending raid.

    Meanwhile TIWN investigating correspondents once again found out interesting facts about Scamster cashier Arnab Chakraborty. The team came to know that Arnab Chakraborty was initially appointed as Group D employee in the Brajanagar Higher Secondary School in die-in harness case. After a year or two Arnab , a so called mafia elements of the ruling  party succeeded to collect a forged Madhyamik Pass certificate through an NGO. And under the influence of local MLA he was promoted to a Lower Division Clerk in the same school though Arnab has no knowledge either in Type Writing or in Computer. Not only that due to his intimacy with the MLA, Arnab Chakraborty was transferred to the Statistical Cell in the Directorate of School Education. But when P K Chakraborty took the charge of Director,Arnab became Cashier. Thus, it is clear that if CBI takes over this case, it may be huge scam like the Saradha one in Bengal and Arnab can be the Kunal Ghosh of TMC. Education Dept/RMSA and oter Scams over past 2 decades may even cross few hundred crores.
