On the other hand, Lokeshwar claimed that the tender notice for the auctioning of eight of IMC’s vehicles had been processed during the time of the previous State Government with an order to carry out the necessary process within 10 days and the IMC had auctioned the vehicles, after the new State Government came to power, on July 23, according to the rules and protocol .
Lokeshwar clarified that the allegations made by the former Mayor, S Sunil, that the auction was approved by him is false and baseless and alleged that Sunil himself had given the approval for the auction on May 22.
