Mumbai: BJP MLA Ashish Shelar seeks probe into tenders for virtual classrooms in BMC schools
The tenders floated for the operation of virtual classrooms in 480 schools run by Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) should be investigated, BJP MLA and the party’s Mumbai president Ashish Shelar demanded Wednesday.
In a letter to BMC commissioner Iqbal Singh Chahal, Shelar sought a thorough probe into these tenders as they allegedly lacked transparency, pointing to corruption.
“On examining the said tenders, it is observed that the terms and conditions mentioned in the document have been laid down to ensure that it gets awarded to a particular contractor. The experience certificate issued by the company, to which the work has been proposed, is found to be bogus. It is observed that the work is being awarded to the company without verifying the documentation by municipal officials.”
