AAP - DK Convenor Rajendra Kumar further stated  " We understand from the above mentioned press article  that the PMC termination has no bearing on the smart city projects and commend the action taken by MSCL. Our sole intent is to ensure that the tax payer’s money is not wasted, so ask that the  impact be assessed and details be shared  in public platform.

It is further requested that MSCL needs to maintain  transparency in its operations and address the following:

1. Execution strategy of its projects post termination of the contract with M/s Wadia Techno Engineering (WTE)
a. Will an in-house team be hired or a new PMC consultant be appointed?

2. The benefits & disadvantages (including the cost and technical impact) of terminating the PMC contract
with WTE.
