Since the Congress leader (Kamat) is an MLA and the House is in session, the summons was routed through the Assembly Speaker.
Kamat said he will cooperate with the agencies.
“I will go to crime branch today. I have nothing to hide,” said Kamat, who was heading the state between 2007-2012 when Louis Berger company reportedly paid bribe.
The US company bribed the ministers to win consultancy for water augmentation and sewerage line project executed under JICA (Japan International cooperation agency) funding.

Police have already arrested A Wachasunder, a senior official who headed the controversial JICA (Japan International Cooperation Agency) water project in Goa that is at the centre of the pay off case.
His bail application will be heard by a local court this afternoon.
