Malkangiri, Aug 24: Malkangiri district Collector Vishal Singh has cancelled 48 mining lease tenders for minor minerals following the recommendation of the Revenue Divisional Commissioner (Southern Range).

Earlier, allegations were levelled against the then Collector Yeddula Vijay over irregularities in tender process for mining in Malkangiri.

Odisha Pradesh Congress Committee working president Pradip Majhi had alleged that Vijay received Rs one crore and the expensive vehicle as bribe from Andhra Pradesh’s CH Venugopal, proprietor of VG Granites situated at Peta village in Motu tehsil, for awarding lease of 7 stone quarries by manipulating the tender process of Minor Mineral Sources (Sairat) held in March.
