Chief engineer of municipal corporation has come down heavily on a superintending engineer of the buildings and roads (B&R) wing for not following his orders, leading to shoddy carpeting of roads in at least two sectors.

In another letter, he has also pointed out that the work of multilevel parking in Sector 17 was ‘moving at a snail’s pace’. He went on to term it a serious lapse on the part of the official and lack of supervision.

In his scathing letter, MC chief engineer Mukesh Anand has told superintending engineer NP Sharma, “None of my instructions are being adhered to regarding various carpeting works.”

Citing an example, Anand said, “The road and parking lot in front of shop-cum-offices in Sector 7, were carpeted only three months ago. Yet, the upper crust of the road has already started wearing out and number of potholes have developed.”

He gave a similar example for the work done on internal roads in Sector 34-C and D.

NP Sharma could not be contacted despite repeated attempts. hillary.victor@hindustantimes.com
