Crime Bureau, Tolivelugu: Observing the behavior of Megha company in the state of Telangana, one could easily say that they are in no way ready to let go of any of the contracts they bid for. In fact, if they fail by any chance, they are trying hard to not let anybody else grab the opportunity. On top of this, these days, they are also starting to steal the tenders bagged by contemporary companies. It looks like they will fight desperately for any contract in the state by all means. It is very well known that they won the tender for the Kaleshwaram Project, which is once in a lifetime opportunity. But, it seems like they are not satisfied with looting money through just one project, they are now hunting for other projects too.
Despite being a giant international company, they are looking for the Telangana state’s public money even though there are thousands of crores of projects. KCR Sarkar plans to spend Rs 7289 crores as part of the ‘Mana Ooru Mana Badi’ project. Megha has come up with a plan to get a part of this project. Moreover, the IAS was used as a pocket man to keep the commotion going smoothly. Tenders were initially called and canceled. Although 20 percent of the local quota is to be allocated to MSMEs, the rules are strictly adhered to by corporate companies. The tenders were called again, and this time all the entities formed a syndicate. Maintaining it a top secret, they achieved what they set out to do.
Syndicate running at the Star Hotel
It could be said that the son of a Telangana state minister is deeply involved in this whole story of ‘Mana Ooru Mana Badi’. Megha Director Srinivas Reddy and his representative Nukaraju are always working on the same things, such as ‘Who put out tenders? How win them? Similar issues were discussed from the morning of the 24th to the afternoon of the 25th of this month.
The tender was eventually handed over to the once-jailed owner of a company. Tenders are scheduled to open on the 25th. Officials, ministers, big companies, and all those involved in the tenders knew about the matter in advance and right on the day, all the officials slipped away without opening the tender on the evening of the 25th without giving any information to the media and the rest of the staff. Anyone can understand what would have happened if such anarchy had been dealt with over Rs 1,500 crore tenders at the outset of an Rs 8,000 crore project.
Everything must be exposed
Most of the time, we assume that everything is visible clearly from the outside. But that is not the case in education. Previously the information to be kept in the public domain is not visible anymore. Every slack of information is nowadays asking for login details. They are committing their theft without anyone questioning it. The public funds are collectively exploited.
