Mohali councillor alleges scam in MC sanitation contract, seeks Vigilance probe
The contract for undertaking sanitation work in Mohali for the year 2008-09 has come under the scanner as even several months after the expiry of the previous year’s contract, no new contract has been awarded yet. Alleging a scam of at least Rs 75 lakh in the total contract amount of Rs 1.5 crore, several elected municipal councillors of the Opposition group in the Mohali Municipal Council (MC) have sought a probe by the Punjab Vigilance Bureau and immediate dissolution of the present civic body for ensuring a free and fair inquiry. Councillor Kuljit Singh Bedi, who is also a local Congress leader, has accused MC president Rajinder Singh Rana and officials concerned of being hand in glove with the contractor, causing huge losses to the MC besides leaving the sanitation condition deplorable in the city.
