UN­DER THE SCAN­NER

But a se­nior UP govern­ment of­fi­cial fa­mil­iar with the de­vel­op­ments says, “The govern­ment is likely to ask the CBI to probe the Gomti river­front project once Suresh Khanna re­verts with his rec­om­men­da­tions.” The of­fi­cer adds the state govern­ment is also ex­am­in­ing some other big projects ini­ti­ated dur­ing Akhilesh Ya­dav’s rule.

The chief min­is­ter has asked tech­ni­cal and med­i­cal ed­u­ca­tion min­is­ter Ashutosh Tan­don and min­is­ter of state for hous­ing Suresh Pasi to do a pre­lim­i­nary re­view of all projects sanc­tioned in Luc­know.

Tan­don has al­ready sig­nalled which way things may be headed. “There is not a sin­gle project from the pre­vi­ous govern­ment’s ten­ure that is un­touched by cor­rup­tion,” the min­is­ter claims.
