Must read

Guwahati, Sept 18: Congress MP Gaurav Gogoi on Monday sent a letter to Union Minister of Commerce and Industry Piyush Goyal seeking to know if the Pride East Entertainment Private Limited has received Rs 10 crore subsidy the Pradhan Mantri Kisan Sampada Yojana (PMKSY).

“It is apparent from your reply in the Lok Sabha and the list of beneficiaries on the website of the Ministry of Food Processing Industries that Rs 10 Crore has been approved in the name of Pride East Entertainment Private Limited. However, the Chief Minister of Assam, whose family members own and control the said entity, has denied receiving or claiming any amount from the Government of India. Therefore, for the interest of public transparency, I humbly request your kind intervention in the matter so that the real facts come out in the open,” the letter stated.

He added, “In my humble opinion established media channels who want to venture into a new business should seek credit from the financial sector. Government grants must be given to the genuine and needy beneficiaries who have displayed the expertise to utilise the tax -payers money in the proper manner.”

Congress party has alleged that Sarma’s wife firm got Rs 10 Crore subsidy from the government of India. Riniki Bhuyan Sarma, wife of Assam chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma, who is chairperson and Managing Director of Pride East Entertainments Private Limited has announced to file Rs 10 crore defamation case against Congress MP Gaurav Gogoi.
