Wancho delegation meets Garkari over highway ‘scam’

New Delhi (IANS) A delegation of the Wancho community from Arunachal Pradesh on Wednesday met Road Transport and Highways Minister Nitin Gadkari and urged him to take necessary action in a ‘scam’ in the highway construction between Kanubari and Longding.

The 12-member delegation also said the people of Longding district will allow the construction only if Gujarat-based Monte Carlo company executes the work by itself.

The community alleged that the Gujarat company was given the tender to construct the highway earlier this year. However, instead of executing the work itself, it sub-contracted the work to a local company owned by Nabum Tulon.

“The people are ever ready to cooperate with the Monte Carlo company management if they themselves execute the work. The contractors coming from outside Longding district have always compromised with the quality of work. Therefore, to maintain quality of work, we again pray to the transport ministry authority to intervene in this matter and direct the company,” read the memorandum submitted to Gadkari.

The minister was told that in case the company was not in a position to execute the work, then the ministry should re-tender the same.

Gadkari assured the delegation of necessary action.
