Big scam in KUDCEMP implementation, alleges DYFI leader

Mangaluru : “One of the biggest scams in the history of the Mangaluru City Corporation has taken place in the ADB aided KUDCEMP implementation,” alleged DYFI State President Muneer Katipalla.

Speaking to reporters at the DYFI office in the city, he alleged that several officials, contractors and prominent men associated with KUDCEMP were part of this scam.” He demanded a high level investigation into the same and also penalise those found guilty. All the pervious contractors, officials and consultant companies should be black listed from the 2nd phase implementation of the project, he urged.

Muneer Katipalla further said though the underground drainage system in the fast growing city of Mangaluru was highly unsystematic, still the local MLAs Moidin Bava and JR Lobo are silent on the issue giving room for doubt.

Despite utilising Rs 360 crore for UGD facility in Kavoor, Bajal, Suratkal and other places, the works are sub-standard in nature, he alleged.
