DHANGADHI, Oct 29: Chief minister (CM) of Sudur Paschim Province, Trilochan Bhatta, has directed the government bodies concerned to take action against the contractors not completing the construction projects within the deadline.
He directed the chief district officer (CDO) of Doti, Bhim Prasad Bhattarai, to prepare the list of the contractors not meeting the project completion deadline as well as those contractors putting the construction projects in limbo without carrying out activities. Bhatta also directed the CDO to recommend action against such contractors.
CDO Bhattarai said, “Chief Minister Bhatta has directed us to prepare the list of contractors failing to complete the construction projects within the deadline as well as those putting the construction projects in limbo even after agreement. We will move forward as per the direction.”
CM Bhatta directed CDO Bhattarai after the people in Doti complained to the chief minister about the dillydallying in most of the construction projects due to negligence of contractors, said CM Bhatta’s Chief Secretary Shiva Singh Oli.
Inquiring why the activities to blacktop the road from Dipayal bridge to airport were not yet started, CM Bhatta urged CDO Bhattarai to initiate the activities immediately or to recommend action if activities are not carried out.
More than a dozen construction projects are in limbo in the district due to the negligence of contractors.
