Tejashwi misused his position for getting mall clearance: SuMo
Patna,(BiharTimes): Deputy chief minister Sushil Kumar Modi on Tuesday alleged that his predecessor Tejashwi Prasad Yadav misused his position and started the construction of his “Rs 750 core mall” without getting its building plan approved.
Talking to the media he said the approval of the mall’s building plan was filed almost 10 days after the soil scam came to light on April 4, 2017, even though its construction was already underway. The building plan, which was filed in a haste, was returned by the approving authority citing lack of documents such as land receipts, NOCs from NGT and fire department, site photographs and signature of the land owner. Despite that, the construction work was not stopped until the Union Ministry of Environment and Forests ordered the same due to lack of clearances.
Ironically, it all happened when RJD and JD(U) were together in power.
SuMo alleged that actions would be taken against all those responsible for irregularities.
While the senior BJP leader has always said that the project is worth Rs 750 crore the builder has repeatedly said that the project is of much less amount and that SuMo is exaggerating the figure.
The mall was coming up at Saguna More on the western outskirts of Patna.
