Public Accounts Committee of the Legislature has opposed move for construction of Integrated Checkposts (ICP) on Build, Own, Transfer (BOT) model at Tada (Nellore district) and Karapadu (Srikakulam district).

At a meeting of the PAC sub-committee chaired by Bojjala Gopalakrishna Reddy (TDP) on Thursday, members belonging to the TDP and Praja Rajyam said the move would give private firms complete control on the check posts. They said there were already reports of corruption in the Bheemunivaripalem (Tada) ICP in Nellore district and Purushottampur ICP in Srikakulam and wondered whether such measures were meant to benefit the State or private parties.
