Constituency of CM shrouded in darkness: AAP

Thursday, 28 October 2021 | PNS | Dehradun

Despite the purchase of street lights at four times the market price by Khatima municipality, the constituency of the chief minister Pushkar Singh Dhami is still shrouded in darkness. Dhami and his acquaintances are apparently involved in this alleged scam too as no action has been taken on matter so far.

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) made these allegations against the CM on Wednesday. The vice president of party, Amit Joshi said that as per information received under the Right to Information (RTI) Act, Khatima municipality purchased 4,000 street lights at rate of Rs 5,355 per light when usual rates are Rs 1,200 per light.  He alleged, “The officials of municipality have spent a total of Rs 2.14 crore on inferior quality street lights which they bought at four times market price which is a big scam. The streets of Khatima are still shrouded in darkness at night that leads to accidents on a frequent basis.”

He stressed that when condition of CM’s own constituency is such, one can easily imagine conditions of other constituencies in state. He said that corruption is at its peak in state under current state government in almost all departments but nothing is being done by CM. “We demand that Dhami take action against culprits. If government fails to take cognisance of matter soon, we will start a state-wide protest against government,” added Joshi.
