Work at snail pace on Chakrata Road

Dehradun June 24
Former Chief Minister ND Tiwari pulled up officials of the PWD and the Mussoorie Dehradun Development Authority (MDDA) for delaying work related to widening of the Chakrata Road.
Tiwari, who reached Chakrata Road without any intimation this evening, was displeased to see work proceeding at a snail's pace. The shopkeepers of the area too surrounded him and shared their grievances with him.
Tiwari called PWD official on the phone and scolded him saying that the department left the construction work of drain in the middle and began laying road which too had not been completed and now the department had also taken the electricity work in its hand.
After pulling up the PWD official, he then called up Managing Director, MDDA , RM Sundaram and took him to task for not taking up the widening work seriously. He directed him to cooperate with the PWD and expedite the project.
The aggrieved shopkeepers too gathered around him in a jiffy. They complained of slow pace of work and said no deadline had been fixed to complete the work.
In view of the construction work in the progress, the dirt and dust discouraged the customers to come on this road for shopping which was affecting their work severely, they said. Tiwari assured them that the matter would be taken up with the state government.
