After the BMC blacklisted contractors involved in the road works scam in the city, the old generation of contractors are returning back to seek work from the civic body. Along with them, some new contractors are also showing interest in civic works.
Ahead of the monsoon season, the civic administration has taken up the repairing work of 450 roads across the city. These roads suffer potholes during rainy season and hence these Rs 400 crore road repair works are being started on war footing. Companies like Bharat Construction, Prime Developers, Pragati Enterprises, Konark Structural Limited, Rupesh Corporation and Infraprojects, Trans Conduct India, API Seawheelcon, Bitcon India Infrastructure etc have bagged the contracts for these road works. Companies like Bharat Construction and Rupesh Corporation have returned to civic works after a long gap of many years. Bharat Construction has bagged a civic contract after 10-12 years.
Pragati and Konark, the two associated companies of KR Construction which was blacklisted due to road works scam, have bagged three contracts this time.
Meanwhile, the eight proposals for road repair works were sent to the standing committee members just a day before they were passed. It is interesting to note here that the BJP, which had termed itself to be the security guard for transparency in the BMC, did not object to these proposals worth Rs 400 crore. Hence, all these proposals were given official nod within 24 hours. Some proposals for tar and cement road works in M-West, S,T wards etc are pending before the standing committee. It is being alleged that those contracts were awarded which were dealt under the table and the pending ones escaped from it. The Shiv Sena is being supported in this by the BJP, it is being said.
