Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) MLA Prakash Bhoir on Monday locked the Kalyan Sport Complex entry gate.
He said the lock will open only after the contractor, hired by the Kalyan-Dombivli Municipal Corporation (KDMC), completed the work assigned to him by the civic body on the sports complex premises.
Bhoir said 10 years ago the KDMC gave a contract on a built-operate-transfer basis to a contractor from the Wadhwa group to construct a hall, an amusement park and a swimming pool, but the contractor has so far only completed the construction of the hall.
Bhoir said the contractor is now making money by giving the hall for hire at Rs two lakh per event. The contractor has not started work on the park and swimming pool, which is a prime requirement of the locality.
“I have sent many reminders to the Commissioner of the KDMC, Govind Rathod,” Bhoir said.
“The government ordered the KDMC last week, to take possession of the hall from the building, but KDMC officers as well as Rathod are hand in glove with the contractor and they have not taken any action.”
Bhoir warned the KDMC officers not to open the lock.
