Library ‘scam’: Haridwar’s civic body asked to file affidavit


Nainital: The Uttarakhand high court on Thursday asked the Haridwar municipal corporation to file an affidavit after its authorities stated that they have so far received the transfer of only five out of 16 libraries against the state government’s claim. During the previous hearing of the petition, which accuses incumbent Uttarakhand BJP president Madan Kaushik of corruption in the construction of 16 libraries during his tenure as the Haridwar MLA, the state government’s counsel had said that all the libraries were put under the control of Haridwar’s civic body.
Meanwhile, the petitioner, Dehradun-resident Sachchidanand Dabral, alleged that these libraries have not been constructed till date and alleges financial irregularities of Rs 1.5 crore in the case. The petition was filed in 2010.
Notably, Rural Engineering Service was the agency responsible for the construction of libraries.
