Cong demands CBI probe into ‘corruption’ in Gurupriya bridge construction

Odisha Pradesh Congress chief Niranjan Patnaik today demanded a CBI probe into the excess payment of Rs. 74 crore to a contractor company in the construction of Gurupriya bridge as pointed out by the Principal Accountant General (PAG)

In a statement here, Patnaik said Rs. 74 crore has been paid in excess to the contractor company fraudulently in construction of Gurupriya bridge in Malkangiri district to connect the cut off area.

He said since the PAG has pulled up the state government over the excess payment made to the contractor company, a CBI probe must be ordered so that everybody will know the fact behind the excess payment to the contractor company. (UNI)
