Decision to retender Azhikkal terminal project draws flak

The state government’s decision to retender the bulk cement terminal project at Azhikkal for the third time has come as a shock for many, who had lobbied for it and they feel the delay might result in the project being abandoned.

“The move to retender the project is ridiculous because ministers P K Kunhalikutty and K Babu had repeatedly said that this time the tender would be approved though there was only one bidder.
