Sarang inspects ROB construction in Aishbag

Sports and Youth welfare minister Vishvas Kailash Sarang inspected the road over bridge (ROB) construction in Aishbag, which falls under the Narela constituency, on Wednesday.

The minister expressed discontent on not finding the chief engineer of the Public Works Department (PWD) on the spot, who was entrusted with the responsibility of meeting the quality standards. During this, mayor Malti Rai as well as other officials of the PwD were present. The minister said the ROB will be completed by June-end.

After Sarang reached the spot and found the chief engineer Sanjay Khande missing, he reprimanded him by calling him up and asked him when he had conducted the last inspection of the spot.

He apprised Khande that in his presence, the quality of the construction works was being compromised and issued orders to the department to take strict disciplinary action against the chief engineer. Sarang also spoke to the PWD chief secretary regarding the issue.
