The Aam Admi Party’s (AAP) Karnataka unit has asked the BBMP to start an investigation into Auto Tipper scam which caused a huge loss to the Exchequer.
Talking to media, AAP state unit president Mohan Dasari said that, according to the documents, presently 2,580 tipper autos are would be used to carry out wastage. As much as Rs 57,000 is invested every month on the Auto. But the fact is only 1,230 autos are being used to transport the wastage. Remaining 1,350 autos are only on paper.
He questioned, where are these extra Autos? Who is paying the money? Why is GPS is not made compulsory? Why has no action been initiated against the authorities involved in this scam?”.
He stated, “This is a big scam. Every month, over a hundred crores are misused. There is an urgent need for an investigation”.
As per the sources in the BBMP, they say that the issue is already under investigation.
