According to official documents accessed by India Today NE, the council, under the leadership of Tuliram, has sanctioned multiple contracts worth Rs 200 crore to companies owned by his son and his brother. The standard tendering process was not followed in the allocation of any of these contracts.
Official records indicate that in 2021-22, Rs 100 crore was divided between M/s Kache Construction (OPC) Pvt. Ltd, owned by Singdom Ronghang, son of Tuliram, and Inglong Enterprise, owned by Tuliram's brother Robiram Ronghang.
