PWD EXE ENGINEER OFFICE GHERAOED
Monday, 06 July 2015 | PNS | BALANGIR | in Bhubaneswar
Members of the Balangir Action Committee gheraoed the PWD Executive Engineer office here on Saturday demanding commencement of road construction work from the Ramai Talkies to PatnaHotel Chowk.
“We have been agitating for construction of the road for the past three years. A sum of Rs 75 lakh has already been sanctioned for the same from different stakeholders. However, the work is yet to begin, thanks to the apathetic attitude of the officials,” said committee president Gopalji Panigrahi.
When asked, assistant executive engineer Amit Kumar Tudu said encroachment is the major problem for the road construction. Once the encroachment is cleared, the work would begin. The eviction drive on the road would start from July 10, informed Revenue Officer Sarat Kumar Bag.
However, the committee threatened to again stage agitation in coming days, if the road construction work does not start within a month.
