BAJURA, Feb 19: The Bajura locals have shown their dissatisfaction towards what they term as the 'working style' of the Department of Urban Development and Building Construction (DUDBC) Division Office, Doti.
They have accused the DUDBC office in Doti of undertaking the construction of district's government office buildings carelessly and turning a deaf ear to complaints. The residents shared their concern towards the time taken in constructing government offices in different villages of the district.
The construction of health post buildings at district's Kanda and Dogadi among other VDCs have not been completed in seven years whereas the authorities are holding unsystematic survey of sewerage network in the district, the locals complained to DUDBC Division Office Chief, Jhapad Singh Bishwokarma.
Bajura Chamber of Commerce and Industry President, Dev Bahadur Rokaya, during an informal meeting on Saturday with government representatives complained of the failure to 'rightly utilize' the district's budget and the delay in construction of buildings.
Bishwokarma, on the other hand, spoke of the preparations to start the urban development building reform program in Bajura, 100 persons' settlement program and quake risk minimization program.
The budget channeled to the district in the last fiscal year is yet to be 'rightly utilized' and the master plan for building construction has not been implemented, shared Padam Baduwal, a resident of Bajura. RSS
