Vijender Gupta reveals the report of CBI
DSIIDC COMMITS LARGE SCALE CORRUPTION OF THOUSANDS OF CRORES IN THE DEVELOPMENT WORKS OF UNAUTHORISED COLONIES
BJP Delhi Pradesh President Shri Vijender Gupta revealed about large scale corruption of thousands of crores in the name of development work in unauthorised colonies of Delhi by the Delhi State Industrial Infrastructure Development Corporation. The CBI had investigated into this corruption. CBI found all the allegations of corruptions to be true and forward a report to the Chief Vigilance Officer of DSIIDC recommending stern departmental action against 12 senior Engineers found guilty of corruption. Shri Gupta has demanded that FIR should be filed against the Ministers, Officers and Engineers involved in the bungling and stern action should be taken against them. CBI has recommended imposing penalties on the engineers and also stern legal action against them. Penalty should be recovered from the engineers/officers besides legal action. In-charge of BJP Delhi Pradesh Unauthorised Colony Cell & MLA Sh. Dharmdev Solanki was also present in the Press Conference.
The CBI had forwarded its confidential report for necessary action on 22nd February to the DSIIDC. But in place of taking action on the report, Delhi Government promoted the corrupt engineers and threw the report of the CBI in dustbin. It clearly indicates that the degree of corruption in Delhi Government and its departments and their attempt to cover up corruption.
Shri Gupta gave the aforesaid information to the press person today. He further told that on 26th November, 2007 Delhi Cabinet had laid down guidelines for the development works in 1500 unauthorised colonies. Under this programme development work on large scale was to be undertaken in these colonies which included constructions of roads, drains etc. This work was awarded to DSIIDC and Irrigation and Flood Control Department. These works were completed between the years 2007-09.
CBI found evidence of large scale corruption by the DSIIDC in these works. The CBI inspected these construction works and found that work orders worth 600 crore rupees was divided into 884 work orders deliberately to show them of less than 1 crore rupees each so that the approval of Chief Technical Examiner may not be required. The rule is that if any work is of more than 1 crore rupee then the approval of Chief Technical Examiner is necessary. It shows that the intentions of the leaders and officers of Government were not good. They wanted to loot the public money in the name of development works. Besides this they formed pool by dividing among all the contractors works orders of less than 1 crore so that many times higher amount may be looted from the Government exchequer.
The CBI in its surprise inspection has found that DSIIDC had handed over the works of 11 Works Division to only 1 Superintending Engineer which is illegal. First of all concrete roads were constructed in the unauthorised colonies and after that sewer lines and drains were constructed so that more money could be earned. Due to this concrete roads were dug up again and again. The roads were ruined but the concerned officers benefited from it. The CBI dug up the concrete roads and found that the construction work was substandard. The material used for the construction of roads was of so much low quality that it was washed out within a year. Besides this many more serious defects were found which were committed deliberately for earning money illegally.
