Choudhry smells a rat in return of ‘banned’ pipes 19.1.2018 The Tribune
Tribune News Service Chandigarh, January 18 Congress Legislature Party (CLP) leader Kiran Choudhry today demanded a Vigilance inquiry into two tenders floated by the Haryana State Industrial I Development Corporation for the “banned” AC pipes for supplying water to Manesar and Faridabad. Addressing a press conference here today, Choudhry alleged that the whole matter reeked of an alleged scam since two committees, formed by the successive governments of the Congress and the BJP, had found these to be “unfit” for carrying drinking water supplies. After the Khattar government took over the state, the Public Health Department floated tenders for the AC pipes which had been written off by the Congress. “However, after a hue and cry, the tenders were scrapped and the BJP government constituted another committee to study the AC pipes and DI pipes,” she said, adding that this committee, too, ruled in favour of the DI pipes. Objecting to the tenders floated by the HSIIDC, Choudhry pointed out that the committee ...
