A New Zealand based ASR company in collaboration with a Hyderabad based company has come forth to take up the work for this ADB funded Rs 100 crore project, under the single tender system.

Khader said that the Centre and the State government should pressurise the ADB to hand over the project to this company because the commencement of the work has already delayed and if this work is not started by September, the project will lapse.

“If the project lapses, then the entire procedure of preparing the reports etc will have to be done all over again. Hence, though there are about four companies in the world, which do this kind of technical work, the government must clarify if the work can be handed over to ASR so that the works could be started at the earliest,” he said.

Sand policy

Khader said that the draft of the sand mining policy of the government seems to have created lot of confusion.

Though the local representatives of the region have told District-in-charge Minister Krishna J Palemar that the policy does not suit the region at all, he has not done anything in this regard to voice the opinion of the local representatives at the State level.
