Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) legislators refuted Opposition parties’ allegations about the lease of the Outer Ring Road (ORR) to infrastructure company IRB Infrastructure Developers Limited on Thursday, calling the accusations politically motivated.
They clarified that the lease agreement did not require an advance deposit of 10% of the tender amount.
LB Nagar MLA D Sudheer Reddy told reporters at the BRS Legislative Party office here on Thursday that IRB had won the tender in accordance with the rules, and that the State government had issued a letter of acceptance.
“TPCC chief A Revanth Reddy is spreading false information on the ORR agreement and the tender,” he said, criticizing Revanth Reddy’s allegations of corrupt governance in the state terming the Congress leader as the brand ambassador for commissions.
The BRS legislator also slammed BJP MLA M Raghanandan Rao for filing a complaint with Central agencies about the ORR lease, saying that the CBI, Enforcement Directorate, and Income Tax departments have become the Narendra Modi government’s “tri-forces” to harass opposition parties.
He recalled that the people of Karnataka have kicked out the BJP over the charges of 40 per cent commission. He also advised Governor Tamilisai Soundararajan to concentrate on her duties as the head of the State rather than making political comments to appease her bosses.
Qutbullapur MLA KP Vivekananda strongly opposed the Congress and BJP’s false propaganda against the State government over the ORR lease and repeal of GO 111. He stated that both opposition parties were trying to provoke the people for political mileage. He stated that both opposition parties were attempting to provoke the public for political gain.
He recalled that the GO 111 was scrapped in response to a public demand based on resolutions passed by local bodies in 84 villages within the GO 111 area. He urged opposition parties to go to the affected villages and get firsthand accounts.
