Public Accounts Committee  Chairman warns  L&T

Public Accounts Committee Chairman warns L&T

Many members of the Erode Corporation today complained to the Chairman of the Assembly Public Accounts Committee, Selvaperundakai, that there are various shortcomings in the new Rs 540 cr Uratchikottai drinking water project being implemented in the Erode Corporation.  When the PAC reviewed the project at the Corporation office, the complaints were lodged against the L&T company which was implementing the project. 

In many places drinking water did not come in. The firm's officials did not attend even phone calls of councillors regarding water problem. In this regard, the PAC chairman said the PAC will recommend to the government to blacklist the company if suitable explanation is given on the complaints.   Following this, the members pointed out various grievances regarding the underground sewerage project (UGD). 

Corporation zonal president Sasikumar said the sewerage project was not implemented properly during the previous regime. So, sewage water was flowing on the roads from manholes.  The officials said they were looking for an alternative but  the problem persisted.  The chairman said suitable recommendation will be given on the issue.

Modakurichi MLA Dr Saraswathi said in her residential area at Periyar Nagar also sewage treatment plant was built causing much hardship to residents. Corporation mayor Nagaratnam Commissioner Sivakumar attended.
