Thiruvananthapuram: The Congress party on Friday asked the Kerala government to explain why service firm KPMG is being paid Rs 66 lakh to design a website of a state government organization. The Congress had already expressed its reservation over the selection of the international company as consultant partner for rebuilding the state in the wake of the worst flood disaster that it faced in nearly a century.
“Now with the government order of giving the job of web designing of Roots-Norka to KPMG for a whopping Rs 66 lakh, the state government should explain the relationship between the government and the firm,” Leader of Opposition Ramesh Chennithala said. He also reminded them that the government had earlier said that the KPMG was doing the rebuilding of Kerala for free. “The state government owes an explanation on why this happened and should come clean on if there are any more contracts that have been awarded on the sly,” added Chennithala.
