New Delhi, Sep 26 (IENews) Congress alleges an over Rs 30,000 crore scam in E-Tendering in Madhya Pradesh in the last four-years.
The Congress on Tuesday expressed apprehensions that the scam could impact the assembly elections being held in the state later this year and called for an intervention of the Election commission.
In a letter to the Chief Election Commissioner OP Rawat, chairman of the AICC legal department Vivek Tankha alleged that the officers involved in the scam are close to the BJP and chief Minister Shivran Singh Chauhan.
‘’The scam can influence the assembly elections. Hence the election commission should take immediate cognizance of the matter immediately intervene,’’ Tankha said.
In the letter, Tankha has said that some of the facts relating to the e-tendering that have come to light have come as a surprise to the Chief Secretary of the state, and on May 14, he ordered filing of an FIR and a report on the hacking of electronic records and their tampering.
Calling it a big scandal, the Congress has said that the EC should intervene in the matter to ensure transparency in the electoral process.
