After postponing the deadline for Commonwealth Games related works taken up by the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD), the civic body officials on Monday once again pushed it by one month to August 30, 2010.
“The projects were slated to finish by June 30 as per earlier deadline and most of the works have been duly completed. It is only those works which are hampered due to other agencies’ road cutting that are pending,” the administration (Engineering Department) gave these answers in reply to short-notice question.
“The High Powered Committee has decided July 31 to be the deadline for all road cutting works and restoration works. All works would be completed by August 30,” said Leader of the House Subhash Arya and councillors Suman Kumar Gupta and Ram Kishen Singhal.
Leader of Opposition Jai Kishen Sharma had raised the issue during House meeting even as he criticised the ‘tour’ by Mayor Prithviraj Sawhney and Arya.
“You took the media on tour of only those places which were almost complete. But there are scores of projects that are incomplete,” Sharma said and read out all the projects and their status of completion.
