Super corrupt government penalising me, says Kheny

Super corrupt government penalising me, says Kheny
DH News Service, Bangalore:
Nandi Infrastructure Corridor Enterprise on Saturday slammed the Karnataka Governments move to consider a proposal from an international consortium to develop the Bangalore-Mysore Infrastructure Corridor.

The company termed the reported consortium as “bogus” and said the move was part of a “super-corrupt” government’s efforts to distract attention from a court contempt hearing against the government that’s coming up on Monday.
No company
“Global Infrastructure is the name they’ve given for the consortium... there’s no such company registered. In fact, members who the government claims are part of the consortium have already written to us saying that their names have been fraudulently used by SKIL” Ashok Kheny, MD, NICE told Deccan Herald. The State, by filing an additional affidavit, has informed the Supreme Court that it had received a suo moto proposal from a consortium, the net worth of which runs over Rs 10 lakh crore.
Contempt case
The company has filed a contempt case against seven senior State Government officers, including Chief Secretary P B Mahishi and Revenue Secretary S M Jaamdar. The hearing of the case will come up on Monday. Reacting to the consortium’s offer to develop a Rs 1,700-crore monorail link, Kheny said NICE had already made an offer to the government to develop a monorail at around Rs 8,000 crore.
“Where’s the sanctity of the original agreement? This super-corrupt government is penalising someone because he has only refused to pay bribes,” he said.
