UT home secretary Anurag Agarwal on Saturday called on the family of Rock Garden creator Nek Chand, who died on June 12.
Offering condolences to Chand's wife Kamla Saini and his son Anuj Saini, Agarwal said, “The UT administration will expedite the pending works at the Rock Garden from July onwards. For now, our prime focus is to set up a museum displaying the memorabilia of Nek Chand.”
The home secretary, also chairman of the Rock Garden Society, said, “The administration will ensure all projects are completed as per the drawings submitted by Chand.”
Nek Chand, who was also the society chief, had recently also shared some drawings to expand the Rock Garden, like creating an exit and one-way path for moving out of the garden.
“Work at the museum that will display Chand's tools, his cycle, old pictures and other belongings will be completed soon. Besides, the doll gallery, laughing mirrors and aquarium will also be upgraded.”
Meanwhile, in memory of Nek Chand, a 'sarva dharam prarthana sabha' will be held at the Rock Garden, Phase 3, on June 21 from1pm to 3pm. It will be followed by 'langar' (community kitchen).
