Haryana chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda has directed the state chief secretary to convene a special meeting in Gurgaon, to review and expedite all the pending infrastructure-related projects.

The meeting will be held on October 11.

The CM’s order comes two days after Hindustan Times concluded the series — Gurgaon Collapsing — highlighting the lack of infrastructural facilities in the town.

Now, Chief Secretary Dharam Vir has asked District Magistrate Deepti Umashankar to draft the agenda of the meeting.

The chief secretary said he was aware that roads, sanitaton and water supply are on top of the town’s list of problems. “Recent reports in the Hindustan Times highlighted these problems prominently. I also got some feedback from the residents,” he said, in a telephonic conversation from Chandigarh.

Organisations and departments, including the Haryana Urban Development Authority, the town’s municipal corporation and department of Town & Country Planning, will participate in the October 11 meeting.
