Donyi Polo Vidya Bhawan Raffle Lottery Draw - Part 3

As was expected and noted in my earlier posts (See Part-1 & Part-2), the re-scheduling and redrawal of DPVB Raffle Lottery Draw has been ruled out by the State Chief Minister Mr. Gegong Apang in the ongoing assembly session where the report of one man enquiry committee on this controversy was filed; terming the conduction of drawal transparent and fair.

Here, what I don't understand is that how the government has given clean chit to the organising committee of DPVBRLD despite the report stating that

"....most of the laws governing such private lottery have not been fulfilled............"

and in regard of change of venue and time -

"....although the said law prescribed a set of procedures to be followed, the said law does not provide any corrective course of action in case of such non-compliance of prescribed procedures."

And I'm equally amazed by the statement of our Hon'ble Finance Minister Mr. Kalikho Pul in terming the non-compliance of prescribed procedures as a minor "error" which is not punishable. (Source: - Echo of Arunachal dated 28-10-2006)

And when the conduction of this draw has been given clean chit by the Government isn't it an eyewash on the part of Government in saying that
the Government would leave no stone unturned to award punishment to those found guilty in the lottery fiasco?
