Yogi Govt To Investigate Rs 9 Crore Spent In Snake Catching And Other Projects By Akhilesh Yadav

Updated on 28 August, 2018 at 6:29 pm By

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister, Yogi Adityanath’s office has recently received a proposition to order a “special audit” on all financial expenditure incurred to build the Janeshwar Mishra Park and Jai Prakash Narayan International Centre (JNIPC), and development of the Hussainabad area in Lucknow’s old city.

The newly formed BJP government in the state would likely investigate the escalated costs, violation of tender norms, failure to obtain necessary approvals and Rs 9 crore spent on catching snakes at a park.

A “detailed special audit” is likely to take place into alleged irregularities in the three flagship projects undertaken by the Akhilesh government. The projects were undertaken under the direct supervision of Akhilesh Yadav, who headed the Housing Department, which carried out these projects.

After the new government took charge, Lucknow Divisional Commissioner, Anil Garg, formed three separate committees to look after these projects separately. Each committee was under the supervision of a chief engineer of the public works department with a superintending engineer and two executive engineers as its other members. Some reports have been submitted last week. The probe panels found that almost Rs 864 crore had been spent on developing JPNIC, which is yet to be completed; Rs 396 crore on Janeshwar Mishra Park; and around Rs 265 crore for the Hussainabad development.



“These amounts are more than the double the initial sanctioned costs for the projects,” revealed the report. Garg said,

Financial anomalies have been found in execution of the projects. Rules were violated in tender process of various works in these projects. The probe panels reported that procurement of different material and equipment for these projects, some of which were not needed, were done on the rates much higher than existing market rates.

Akhilesh had inaugurated Janeshwar Mishra Park in August 2014, JPNIC on October 11, 2016, and the Hussainabad re-development on December 4, 2016.
