BHOPAL: After CM Shivraj Singh Chauhan’s  stern action against Capital Project Administration (CPA),  teams of officials descended on the roads inspecting and ensuring their repair.  The agencies engaged in laying water pipeline projects have been directed to complete the pending work within three days or face music. 

Irked over poor condition of roads in Bhopal city, Chief Minister Shivaraj Singh Chouhan, on Friday, had announced winding up of CPA over its alleged casual approach towards road maintenance.  Chouhan had reprimanded the officials for the bad condition of roads in the state capital during a review meeting.
