CAG objects to Guj development agenda, says Govt helping infra Cos
Gandhinagar, April 3 : CAG has pointed to `some concessions’ made to infra companies by Gujarat Govt in its report tabled today in assembly. Forgetting its own deeds of blatant corruptions at centre, the Gujarat Congress party hastily tried to corner the Modi Govt in the state using the CAG report tabled in state assembly today. While Govt officials were cautious while commenting about the report, Congress, as always, tried to twist the facts to its own benefits.
There are three main issues in the CAG report tabled in the assembly today : GSPL passing `undue benefits’ to RIL, Gujarat Urja Vikas Nigam Ltd (GUVNL) making short recovery of penalty from Adani Power and Govt giving land to infra projects like forging plants & steam generators of nuclear power plants.
CAG has pointed to some losses to public exchequer. The points are :
Points to note :
It’s noteworthy that the L & T’s plants are manufacturing important engineering parts for nuclear power plants of the nation.
Congress has alleged ‘collusion’ between the State and corporate houses. Congress spokesman Manish Doshi said, "We have been raising the issue of collusion between corporate houses and the state government at every forum. The corporate houses get undue favours from the state government and in turn they praise the Modi government."
Looking at the `allegations’ CAG made, one can say that these are mere perceptions as the right to allocate the land for such type of projects lie with state govt and looking at the numbers given by the CAG itself, one can also say that the Gujrat govt has used those rights very efficiently, industry insiders say.
