Reacting to a Greater Kashmir report regarding the cancellation of a contract to an Indo-Sino company for Wular dredging, Omar Abdullah on Saturday said this is a fit case for Governor N N Vohra to send it to Accountability Commission (AC) and State Vigilance Commission (SVC).

“Cancelling is just one part. This is a fit case for @jandkgovernor to send to the Accountability Commission & the State Vigilance Commission for investigation,” National Conference Vice President Omar Abdullah wrote on micro-blogging website Twitter.

He was reacting to a report carried by Greater Kashmir in its Saturday edition that Government cancels ‘controversial’ 389-crore contract to Indo-Sino company. The contract was awarded to Indo-Sino company by Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) coalition government last year. 

Nearly a year after a ministerial panel cleared an Indo-Sino company to dredge the Wular Lake, the Governor’s administration has cancelled the contract that had run into controversy over some financial issues.

A source told Greater Kashmir that one of the reasons that led to cancellation of the contract to a joint venture between Kolkata-based Reach Dredging Limited and China-based Hubei Hongyan Engineering Company Limited was the lack of a clear source of funding to undertake the project.
