AAP complains, PMO takes cognisance and writes to Harish Rawat govt for action


The PMO has taken cognisance of a written complaint lodged by the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) alleging corruption in Uttarakhand Power Corporation Limited (UPCL), the AAP said here on Monday.

“Taking note of our complaint addressed to Prime Minister Narendra Modi regarding corruption in UPCL, the PMO has forwarded it to the state government for necessary action,” AAP s state working committee president Anoop Nautiyal told the reporters.

The letter alleging corruption in the UPCL was sent to the PMO by Nautiyal on August 1. It said the bids for an order worth Rs 240 crore were opened on separate dates, resulting in violation of government procurement rules.

Rejecting UPCL s argument that the bids were opened on separate dates due to ‘technical glitches’, the AAP leader asked why the bids were not cancelled and the process started afresh.

Previously, the CAG had also pulled up the UPCL on the same issue.
