The Bhaguanath Yojana (Biyokan) project is being built on land allotted to RSS cadres by the Central government, which has been given a bye in the allotment process, according to the construction company.
“This project has been approved by the department of roads and highways under the Planning and Urban Development (PUD) and Development (Development) Acts, 2013 and 2017.
But the department, on behalf of the government, is seeking to amend the process,” a statement issued by the company, Bharat Constructive, said.
The CCS company, which is based in Gujarat, has built over 500 cranes and has built a huge number of roads, highways and bridges across the state, including several under the National Highway Development Corporation (NHDDC) banner.
It is the largest private construction company in the state and employs over 4,000 people.
The company is being paid about Rs 10 crore a month to build the project on a 30-acre plot of land in Gandhinagar.
The construction company’s statement, however, does not clarify why the department has been seeking to “revamp the allotments process”.
The department’s office did not respond to an emailed query.
The project was also cleared by the state government in 2015, with the nod of the then Chief Minister Narendra Modi.
But after the NDA government came to power in 2017, the process was stopped after a Supreme Court order that allowed the project to proceed.
A special court has also ordered that the entire project be demolished by 2019.
