Nagpur News– Shocking information has come to light that about Rs 16 crore has been recovered by showing documents of the victims of Gosekhurd dam project. A dispute arose between the main contractor and the sub-contractor over money. So 40% of the work is left and the villagers are grappling with this dispute.
The Vidarbha Irrigation Board had awarded the rehabilitation contract to the National Building Construction Company. Rehabilitation work was to be done in ‘Back II and Sack Three’ in this project. The National Building Construction Company had given a contract of 16 crores to a private company in Delhi for development work. That company got a local company out by giving work on the box.
NBCC company recovered the full amount by submitting documents of more than 60% work done. However, money was not paid to the local company for the work done by the Delhi Company. So the work here was stopped. Now that the monsoon has started, the pre-monsoon works have worsened the situation. In such a situation, the anger among the local people has increased further.
Officials of Vidarbha Irrigation Department were contacted in this regard, but there was no response from their side. Many contractors have worked in this area during the Corona lockdown. This includes asphalt roads and infrastructure. The Sarpanch of Bori and the villagers took a serious decision that they would not allow the construction of roads without the construction of sewers, even though the villagers had also constructed roads.
Hence it became difficult for the contractor to work in this area. Even in that situation, emphasis was laid on doing road construction work for the convenience of the citizens before the monsoon. Some villagers complained to NBCC. When the Irrigation Department of Vidarbha was questioned on this, he refused to say more saying that we have given all the work to NBCC. Due to the continuous rains, the condition of the road in this village has deteriorated and the drain work is also incomplete, due to which crores of rupees have been wasted.
