Kozhikode: Deputy Leader of Opposition and Muslim League leader M K Muneer has raised serious allegations against the state government over the consultancy deal with PricewaterhouseCoopers. Muneer alleged that the multinational firm was presented as the key contact at the investors meet organised for the expatriates in Dubai by the government and Non-Resident Keralites Affairs (NORKA).

He further alleged that apart from being the consultants, PwC also gets a share of the profit and released details of the PowerPoint presentation by the firm at the investors’ meet.

PwC was presented as the firm to be contacted if any discussions were held to make Kerala an investment destination, especially in Gulf countries.

The delegation which went to attend the meet from Kerala consisted of the representatives of PwC. The last slide of the presentation carried logo of Kerala government and Norka Roots. The contact persons mentioned were Norka CEO, Norka representative in Dubai and Arun Pillai, PwC Executive Director in India.

This proves all investments to Kerala passes through the hands of PwC. The consultants turning contact persons indicates their involvement in the project and sharing of profits.

Muneer further demanded the government to clarify whether PwC is an implementing agency.
