Chief minister Chandrababu Naidu’s is unbelievably generous to contractors. This is the extension of Pattiseema project, where he generously rewarded the contractor by about Rs 200 crore for completing the project as per the contract. This idea of forcing contractor to stick the contract with generous rewards is the brainchild of Naidu. Opposition parties in the state took strong objection to rewarding the contractor for fulfilling the contract conditions agreed upon mutually. Chandrababu Naidu’s innovative idea is to give more money over and above the contractual amount as reward and persuade him to complete the work on time.
Why should the government, which wields enormous power to force the Contractor honor the MoU signed, to kneel before him to ensure that the work executed in time ?. Not only opposition parties, even officials also find no rhyme or reason in this generosity towards contractors. It reeks a kind of scam, they say. The complaint is that the reward money would be pumped into politics again. Now, having overcome the resistance from the opposition parties against the incentive announced for Pattiseem project and mainly from the principal opposition party YSR Congress, Chandrababu Naidu is now extending the policy of rewarding the contractors to all works in Andhra Pradesh.
