A month after scrapping tenders for the modernisation of Deonar abattoir, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has demanded a clarification from the project management consultant regarding “rigging of tenders and cartelisation” in tandem with the contractor for the project. The civic body issued the notice to the consultant on August 3.
Following opposition from the BJP, BMC had cancelled tenders worth Rs 400 crore for modernisation of Deonar abattoir.
Prabhakar Shinde, BJP leader in BMC, said in a statement on Tuesday, “The BMC has not taken any action against the consultant except issuing a show-cause notice. The party is demanding that strict action should be taken.”
