PricewaterhouseCoopers to open office in Kerala secretariat: Ramesh Chennithala
Thiruvananthapuram: Opposition leader Ramesh Chennithala has raised serious allegations against the E-mobility project. He alleged that the file of PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) to set up an office at the secretariat is in the final stages and it only requires the signature of the Transport Minister.
The file, that was approved one year ago, has secured the approval of the Finance Ministry, Ramesh Chennithala said and added that the four PwC officers designated to handle the office at the secretariat would draw several lakhs in salary. He was speaking at a press conference at the secretariat.
Taking a dig at the government, Ramesh Chennithala said that the national flag, which includes the logo of PwC, would be hoisted on top of the secretariat in the coming days. The government is letting Multinational Corporations to loot the state and make profit, he alleged.
The opposition leader added that he is aware of his responsibilities and that he is trying to perform them well. The opposition has been trying to fight the pandemic by joining hands with the government. However, the government is committing huge corruptions in the name of COVID. That is what the opposition pointed out.
The government is depending on consultancies for everything. The reliability of these consultancies must be questioned, Ramesh Chennithala said.
