Kozhikode: Congress leader Ramesh Chennithala alleged corruption amounting to lakhs of rupees for every AI camera installed as part of the Safe Kerala Project.

In a press conference, the veteran leader launched a scathing attack against the Keltron. He recalled how the company’s chairman had refused to release the camera purchase details upon enquiry, terming it as confidential.

The Congress leader produced the tender details of a company called ‘Akshaya’, which quoted up to Rs 10 lakhs for every camera, in front of the media.

“Keltron considered tenders from three relatively inexperienced companies for executing the project and finally zeroed in on SRIT. Keltron has breached the trust of its customers by involving in the shady deal,” he alleged.

Keltron has already denied this allegation saying the company ‘Akshaya’ has enough experience. According to Keltron, ‘Akshaya’ changed the name recently and Chennithala has been claiming inexperience quoting documents since then.

Chennithala accused that Keltron was trying to protect the goodwill of CM Pinarayi Vijayan.
