To gain an insight into the expenditure incurred over a period of three years — from inception of the civic body in 2008 till 2011 — mayor of the Municipal Corporation of Gurgaon (MCG) has appointed a committee to conduct a
MCG mayor Vimal Yadav has also hired a team of experts to look into the utilisation of grants, approximately Rs 300 crore.
The reports generated from all four MCG zones (east, west, north and south) will be further examined by a team of experts, comprising retired and senior audit, and accounts officials.
Meanwhile, officials of the four zones concerned have begun submitting reports of development works conducted during the said period to their respective councillors.
“We have already displayed detailed reports of all development works conducted during the said period on the internet and have submitted the same to the councillors and the mayor,” said YK Garg, superintending engineer MCG.
MCG mayor Vimal Yadav, senior deputy mayor Yashpal Batra and deputy mayor Parminder Kataria have been working in this regard and have asked councillors to survey the areas after receiving the report.
“I have received the list of works and I’m going through it. There are some areas where work was not done in a fair manner and in some, it only existed on paper,” said Nisha Singh, municipal councillor of ward no. 30.
The councillors will submit the report to their zonal chairmen, respectively, who, after verifying that the works have been satisfactorily done, will further report to the mayor’s team. The newly elected councillors’ body is reported to have been raising doubts on all minor and major development works, conducted by the MCG from 2008 to 2011, in their meetings with the team of experts.
“The progress of development works is not good enough except the Bandhwari waste management plant. Old Gurgaon is in a sorry state of affairs with broken roads, poor sanitation, sewage disposal etc. People have the right to know where grants have been utilised. This is what we are doing,” said senior deputy mayor Yashpal Batra.
