Corruption rampant under BJP

Ahmedabad / Bhopal / Indore: The louder the BJP pitch against corruption; deeper its own states are caught in the mire of corruption. Citing the CAG report the Congress alleged that the Gujarat government had squandered money to the tune of Rs. 1300 crores. Adani Power Limited caused a revenue loss of Rs 160 crores. Sardar Sarovar project caused a loss of Rs. 45 crores. In another five projects an additional loss of Rs. 100 crore was incurred and a benefit of Rs. 17 crore was given to other corporates. Companies which had completed only 54% of assignment were paid for the whole project. In Madhya Pradesh also the files pertaining to “Devputra” and Green Borad are lying with the CM. The projects, brain children of education minister Archana Chitnis, have been examined by the Lokayukt and he is awaiting clearance from the CM.

In yet another scam relating to pension scheme a recovery worth Rs. 23 crores has been traced from “dead” beneficiaries. The scheme was under a cloud because of alleged irregularities by Ramesh Mendola, a close associate of Kailash Vijayvargiya. There were thousands of bogus claimants among the beneficiaries.
