BJP levels corruption allegations against Kerala govt
Thiruvananthapuram: BJP state president K. Surendran levelled corruption allegations against the Kerala government on Monday.
Taking to Facebook live, the BJP leader alleged that the LDF government was targeting to commit a scam of Rs 500 crore in the K-phone project. Surendran alleged that a scam of Rs 100 crore was being carried out in connection with the rooftop solar project.
He criticised that the state government had been involved in corruption in the last four years with the knowledge of CPI (M).
In the K-phone deal, the government issued the contract after increasing the rate by 50 per cent. CPI (M) is hand in glove with the government in all the corrupt practices and receives a share from the deals,” alleged Surendran.
He alleged that the real beneficiary of the K-Phone project was Uralungal Labour Contract Cooperative Society (ULCCS). He also alleged that ULCCS, which is closely associated with the CPI (M), had faced many allegations of corruption during demonetisation.
"There is mystery in ULCCS’s intervention in the K-Phone project. Like Sivasankar and Swapna Suresh, the CPI (M) is also involved in the scam,” alleged the BJP leader.
Surendran alleged that CPI (M) was trying to escape from the corruption allegations by accusing Sivasankar and Swapna.
“The same group of people tried to illegally resell over 30 acres of land, belonging to the Smart City project, to a private company. But the Chief Minister is not speaking about it now,” he said.
