Chitradurga: PWD officials’ apathy results in road with many electric poles on it


Daijiworld Media Network - Chitradurga (SP)

Chitradurga, Sep 15: The government spends crores of rupees to provide good roads to the people. The officials are expected to see that the funds so sanctioned are carefully used. However, because of the callous attitude of the PWD officials in this district, the contractor had built CC road by leaving several electric poles standing in between. The officials and the people of the district are cursing the contractor for this mindless act.

Seven crore rupees was sanctioned for the construction of the CC road at the main road in front of the RTO office on Turuvanur road in the town. The road, the people expected, would be wide and convenient and thought it would look like a highway. But in a shocking incident, the road has been newly built by leaving electric poles standing on it. If vehicles are driven on this road, the people are sure to bang into the electric poles.

The PWD officials who measured 10.5 metres width from the middle of the road have cut down trees which were giving shade to the people. But they failed to shift the electric poles. The contractor, who was waiting for the road work to resume, which had been stranded for one and half years, created a concrete road by leaving the electric poles where they were.

The people are now hoping that the district administration acts against the erring officials before lives are lost on this road. The people also want new saplings to be planted in place of trees that were unnecessarily cut off.

PWD executive engineer Satish Babu, said that Rs 62 lac was paid to the electric department for removing the poles. He said that the tender has been called and the poles will be removed in15 days. He said that the road will not be opened for public use till then. He said that the poles standing here would be cut off as they cannot be used again. He said that government money will not go waste, and that new poles will be erected by spending money. In a nutshell, the officials seem to be passing the bucks instead of judiciously using the government money and taking care to save the trees.

    Unfortunately this is how our intelligent highly qualified Engineers and IAS qualified Officers manage the public service and utilities. When you induct people into public service purely based on caste reservation without merit & any brains to think what they are doing this is the result and end product they deliver. Waste of public tax payers hard earned money.

    " If vehicles are driven on this road, the people are sure to bang into the electric poles." What is "Bang" ? Bang is a word which can be construed to be something else. The correct word is 'COLLIDE"

    What a shame to have a such a cheap administration. All the officials responsible should be be dismissed immediately without giving any loyalty or pension. Then only our system will change

    All the heads of the irresponsible officials and contractor alike should be rammed against these electric poles so that their brains start working in an efficient manner. So too all the losses incurred from the tax payers contribution should be recovered from these lunatic officials. These officials are even worse than the Uttar Pradesh officials. Shoot these lunatics down with AK47 machine guns.
