Arunachal Pradesh’s former CM Kalikho Pul found hanging at the official chief minister’s residence in Itanagar last year in August and penned 60-page suicide note just before a day he took this dangerous step.
Suicide note reveals that the late chief minister has blamed top legislators as chief minister Pema Khandu, his deputy Chowna Mein for their engagement in corruption. The Foremost portal The Wire has wedged a grip of his suicide note titled ‘My Vichar’ which contains particulars on numerous topics.
In his note, he mentioned that “During my chief ministerial tenure I ensured regular funds for every district under SIDF, RE and NP [non-Plan]. In spite of this, Pema Khandu and his two brothers sought an emergency fund of Rs 6 crore for hydro project maintenance, which was given to them. These funds had not even been touched when they sought more funds in the name of flood relief. They asked for another Rs 10 crore. Rs 10 crore was the sum marked for flood relief in the entire state but even then I gave the largest amount of Rs 6 crore for Tawang.”
Further he wrote that ” I would like to disclose one more thing, namely that Pema Khandu had a hand in the firing incident that took place on May 2, 2016 in Tawang. Pema Khandu did not allow bail to be given the arrested Lama. The phone conversation between the DC and SP Tawang has a mention of Pema Khandu,”.
