Telugu Desam blows hot over wind contract  

Credit:  Deccan Chronicle, www.deccanchronicle.com 26 December 2011 ~~

The Telugu Desam has alleged that large-scale irregularities took place while awarding contracts to three firms for generating 800 megawatt Wind Energy projects in Anantapur district, flouting norms.

TD general secretary and senior legislator Payyavula Kesav on Sunday alleged that Chief Minister N. Kiran Kumar Reddy, without announcing the wind energy policy of the government and without amending the existing norms, had awarded three companies, Het-ero, Axis and another firm (he did not mentioned the name) for generating 800 MW wind energy in Anantapur district.

As per existing norms, the government can award contracts to firms not exceeding to 20 MW for each project. “Without inviting tenders or applications from prospective firms, how can he straightaway award contracts to three firms? This is creating suspicion,” Mr Kesav alleged. The TD leader also said that the firm, Hetero, is now involved in controversy of investing in some sham companies and has come under the scanner of the Central Bureau of Investigation. Mr Kesav demanded that unless the state government comes out with a policy document on awarding contracts for Wind Energy, no firm should be allowed to loot the state.
