Kasaragod: Tightening the noose on KELTRON (Kerala State Electronics Development Corporation) and the state government, former opposition leader Ramesh Chennithala on Tuesday released further documents concerning the alleged scam in the installation of AI-driven surveillance cameras in the state.

As per reports, the new documents emphasise on the opposition’s claim that the companies involved in the project lack necessary qualifications.

“The AI camera project which required only Rs 100 crore, was tendered for Rs 232 crore. There has been a corruption of Rs 132 crores. However, the chief minister is trying to cover up the situation,” said the leader.

“As of now, the chief minister or the government has not been able to prove the allegations, levelled by the opposition, wrong. The Minister for Industries backed KELTRON and took a strange action of ordering for a probe. The chief minister is not giving a clear reply to the allegations and is protecting the corrupt,” added Chennithala.

“The company taking part in the tender should possess a minimum experience of 10 years. Akshara Enterprises India Pvt Ltd, which participated in the tender was registered only in 2017. How can the company claim an experience of 10 years,” he asked.

The leader also levelled new allegations after releasing the technical evaluation summary report and financial bid evaluation reports in connection with the scam.
