Space Allotment at Bus Terminal Draws Flak


KOZHIKODE: The tender proceedings regarding space allocation at the KSRTC bus terminal on Mavoor Road have failed to move forward in accordance with the assurances given by  Minister for Transport Thiruvanchoor Radhakrishnan and it has drawn the ire of people from various quarters.

It was on September 27, 2014, that the minister promised transparency in the tender proceedings and priority for the entrepreneurs in the city, saying that opportunities would be given to small entrepreneurs to bid for the tenders. The minister was attending a meeting of the people’s representatives and officials concerned here. The assurance was given in the wake of the irregularities reported in the tender proceedings of the bus terminal in Thiruvananthapuram, where benefits, allegedly, went only to the real estate mafia.
