The YSRC has criticised the government for “breaching” the set norms in allowing power plant contracts to favour a few.
The government was adopting a tailor-made system by paying exorbitant rates and opting for power generation though there was no immediate need for additional power. “This could well be a major scandal. We demand that the government terminate the contracts and order an inquiry into the award of power plant contracts,” YSRC MLA and PAC chairman B. Rajendranath Reddy said.
The scope for corruption was evident from the clearances given to two power plants with an estimated Rs. 6 crore per megawatt. Authentic JerseyShare This
