Out of the total budgeted money released for any project, 40 per cent goes for a bribe, while 12-28 per cent as GST, 5-6 per cent as EMD. If the contractor raises a loan to carry out any project, he pays at least 12 per cent interest, in such a situation what will be left for the contractor to complete the work? The total estimated expenditure is Rs 2,47,000 crore for the year 2021-22, of which Rs 1,50,000 crore is paid for salaries, pensions and repayment of previous borrowings. Only about Rs 1,00,000 crore is available for developments,” the Opposition Chief stated in his letter to the Governor.
