AGARTALA, Jan 29 (TIWN): In 21 months of BJP Govt along with various other scams as recruitment scams, two departmental scams came out, which have hit the public trust further on the Govt. After cancer medicine scam was exposed after a verdict in High Court, now BJP Govt’s own MLA Sudip Barman has raised question on tender-allocation corruption in causing a scam of Rs. 450 cores. The issue was raised after during a debate among ruling party leaders in the Assembly, corruption was exposed after MLA Sudip Roy Barman raised question about handing-over of PWD projects to NHIDCL without any tender caused Rs. 450 crores of corruption. Addressing at the Assembly, MLA Sudip Barman said, “My basic question is, whereas from 2015-16, 2016-17,2017-18 FYs continuously we were conducting the national highway construction, maintenance works by State PWD, but what suddenly happened in 2018-19 after our Govt formed that in an urgent mode, the tenders were handed over to other NHIDCL without tender which is causing massive revenue incomes ?”

On the other side, Cancer Drug Purchasing scam under BJP-Era turns biggest ever Health Dept scam in Tripura under CM Biplab Deb. Profit finding Govt in all sectors had chosen compromise with Cancer drugs which are although life giving medicines for them who are on the verges of death. The recent medicine scam has turned too a blot for Tripura's Health Dept history which was committed with self interest of Chief Minister Biplab Deb who removed Sudip Barman from the Ministry before indulged in the corruption. Mumbai based M/s Reliance life style private Ltd. Belongs to Dhirubhai Ambani group was illegally appointed to benefited from Tripura Govt, after Biplab Deb Govt given tender to them, cancelling Biocon company’s appeal although that company had no experience. 

The corruption of Tripura Health Department under BJP Govt’s era got exposed in the High Court on November 27. The Chief Justice of High Court A A Kureshi in a hearing restricted the new Company from supplying Medicines for Cancer in GB Hospital, which was doing without the legal permission of Tripura Cancer Hospital. Cancer Hospital had called a tender for supplying medicines in hospital, where the petitioner of this case ( case no - WPC 1028/2019)  Biocon company had also participated. But as this new company was convinced in lowest rate, the tender was given to them which had no experience earlier. After that Biocon company sent a letter to Tripura Health Department stating that the new company is not having the 3 years manufacturing experience, as per rules. But the Committee of Tripura health Department investigated the whole matter and gave them clean chit led the company to file a petition in the High Court.

As the tender was given to the new company illegally, thus the High Court cancelled that tender and given it to Biocon.

Question arises, how an inexperienced company can get the tender, and even got the clean chit too from the special investigating team of Tripura Govt?

TIWN spoke with Biocon company officials, they were surprised that how a State Govt can award a muticrore contract to a company not even making few lakhs profits, neither any capacity to manufacturing facility ?

Loss Making  Reliance Lifestyle Holdings paid-up capital is only Rs 5 lakhs, barely no income but Tripura Govt awarded them a multicrores contract
