Alipurduar, Oct. 31: The Trinamul Congress’s town block committee submitted a memorandum to the executive engineer of PWD (NH X division) today demanding immediate repair of NH31C.
“The engineer told us that a contractor has been given the charge of repairing the road. He will deposit the security money by November 12 and a work order would be issued after that. Equipment will come from Calcutta and work will start only on the first week of December,” local Trinamul leader Mridul Goswami said.
He added that the PWD official told them the work was getting delayed because of the delay in sanctioning of funds by the Centre. Executive engineer A.P. Singh refused comment.
