[New Delhi] Congress Derailing CCTV Project in Delhi:AAP
The Aam Aadmi Party today alleged a “conspiracy” was being hatched to stall its ambitious CCTV project, a day after Delhi Congress chief Ajay Maken claimed the project was marred by corruption.
Senior AAP leader Gopal Rai alleged that Maken was “working on the BJP agenda” and sought to know if the Congress chief was planning to join the saffron party.
Rejecting Maken’s charges that tenders were finalised without the approval of the competent authority, the AAP’s Delhi convener said the Delhi government had not relaxed rules to favour any agency.
He said there were two types of tenders —
Rate Contract Tender and
Project Contract Tender.
The government was installing CCTV cameras through the Rate Contract Tender, under which payment to the agency concerned is made based on the basis of rate-per-unit.
He also sought to know as to how many CCTV cameras were installed by the Sheila Dikshit goverment which helmed Delhi for 15 years.
