Moreh ICP By-Pass Road Land and Structures Committee has clarified that no corruptions 

have been made in regards to the compensation of people affected by the By-Pass Road. 

Chairman of the committee Holkhopao Baite in a release, said that the allegation levelled by Intormation and publicity, SDFK S Kuki in news items published in some local dailies on November 22 against seven persons regarding the compensation are unfounded and baseless. 

It pointed out that the KNO President PS Haokip, Tengnoupal DC M Rajkumar, former BJP Outer MP candidate Benjamin Mate, Chairman of Mate Tribe Union Jangthang Mate, Chairman of Kuki Chiefs Association, Tengnoupal, Seijang Baite, Thangpao Touthang and Tongpao Haokip were blamed for misappropriation of monetary compensation to the people affected by Moreh ICP By-Pass Road Project. 

“The Committee has nothing suspicious and objection against the said individuals. It is unfortunate that the good image of the KNO president, Tengnoupal District Administrator, Tribe and CVO leaders have been badly damaged due to the concocted and baseless charge levelled by a non-SOO militant group,” the release stated. 

It also appealed to all individuals, CV0s and militant groups to retrain from issuing such baseless statement in the future.
