GANDHINAGAR: Even before its take off, the Rs 22,000-crore Ahmedabad-Gandhinagar metro rail project has run into serious trouble with its vendors alleging major corruption in due payments.

Around 40 vendors created a scene at Metro-Link Express for Gandhinagar and Ahmedabad (MEGA) company's headquarter in Gandhinagar on Monday over non-payment of around Rs 80 crore. They left the premises only after being assured that their dues would be cleared before October 30.

One of the agitated vendors alleged, "Around Rs 300 crore land filling work contracts were allocated by the earlier chairman Sanjay Gupta to us without the tendering process. He resigned suddenly and our payments were stopped by the company. Gupta had also issued postdated cheques which have bounced. The company also stopped the ongoing work and payment after July." Gupta had resigned in August end.

When contacted, chief executive officer of MEGA Vijay Nehra said, "I came to know that some vendors have come to represent over the pending payments by the earlier management. The new board has taken over recently and also discussed the issue. The matter will be sorted out shortly."yderabad Real Estate,Residential Property in Gachibowli,Residential Property in Hyderabad
