Janjgir-Champa: From August 10, the work of filling the potholes of the roads should start: Collector
Korba/ Janjgir-Champa, August 05 (H.S.). Most of the roads in the district are in poor condition. There are potholes everywhere, the chances of accidents have increased. Why can’t you guys see it? The rains have come. If you don’t fill the pit now, when will you fill it? Why didn’t you send for tender earlier? This is all your departmental work. There is negligence in the work. No meeting is being held. Neither are able to get the work done nor are you working yourself. It won’t work like this at all. There are instructions from the Chief Minister, Ministers, State Government to high officials that all major roads should be pothole-free. Still unable to work. You guys haven’t even made an offer already. Now I don’t know anything. From August 10, the work of filling the potholes should start and send me photos of the work being done.
Collector Taran Prakash Sinha on Friday reviewed the departmental works by taking a meeting of the officials of the construction agencies. Seeing the progress of other construction works including road, government building, the collector expressed strong displeasure at the officials of National Highway including Public Works, Rural Mechanical Service, Housing Board, Water Resources, Pradhan Mantri Sadak Yojana. Not taking the meeting of his subordinate officers and not reviewing the works, the Collector has given a stern warning that if the works are not improved soon, they will inform the higher officials for necessary action. The Collector instructed the officials of PWD to work under special repair and annual repair.
He said that there is no shortage of money with the government. If only PWD people will be negligent then other departments will be more negligent. Expressing displeasure at the officer of the National Highway, the Collector directed that the work of repair of the concerned roads should be started at the earliest. He also reviewed the works of Home Construction Board, Public Health Engineering Department, Prime Minister’s Road Scheme, Bridge Department and instructed to bring progress in the works.

You don’t even take the meeting, so there is no progress in the work
