The tender to rebuild a side dam at Thalduwa bridge at Seethawaka across Getahetta Oya has already been awarded following the due procedure.
It was to the highest bidder, of Rs. 15.6 million, but a bidder who unsuccessfully made a Rs. 5.6 million bid got a Polonnaruwa district MP to use a personal secretary at the presidential secretariat to send letters asking for a cancellation of the tender.
Upon being informed by the successful bidder about this, the president has ordered an inquiry, and also to grant the tender to the chosen bidder.
