The UP chairman and member rushed the 462-foot road with quality no. 2-3 bricks and sprinkled more sand in 3 days!
There are allegations of irregularities in the road construction of the HB diversion project from Daulatkhali Bazarpara Main Road to Sharif’s house under Daulatpur UP No. 10 of Kushtia Daulatpur Upazila.
Nasirul, president and UP member of the project, and Mohiul Islam Mohi, UP chairman and project supervisor, were accused of irregularities.
It is learned that LGSP-3 PBG, a project of the 2020-2021 fiscal year at a cost of Tk 4,21,900 with a length of 462 feet and a width of 7 feet from Daulatkhali Bazarpara Main Road towards Sharif’s house was approved.
Ward No. 5 member Nasirul Islam and project supervising UP chairman Mohiul Islam Mohi were given the responsibility of completing the road work as project directors.
The locals alleged that the chairman and member rushed the 462-foot road with quality no. 2-3 bricks and sprinkled more sand in 3 days so that no one can know about the quality of bricks. They complained that the road, worth Tk 4,21,900, will not last for six months.
The locals lamented that no bricks number were used on the road.
The project director Nasirul said the road was not built with quality no. 3 bricks. However, he admitted that there may be quality no. 2 bricks.
The allegations against me were false, said UP Chairman Mohiul Islam Mohi. “Brick number 3 is not supposed to be on that road. However, there may be some quality no. 2 bricks.”
