POONCH TODAY NEWS
POONCH: Time and again exposed by “POONCH TODAY” newspaper that massive bungling had taken place in the ongoing construction work of Polytechnic college at Sathra, but the top PWD officials never taken into account those officials, who took heavy commission from the project by scripting many foul plays. It is pertinent to mention here that that the total project cost of polytechnic college is Rs 1300.00 lacs and out of this, Rs 492.00 lacs has been used as stated by Executive Engineer PWD Poonch, but the biggest surprise is that the top PWD officials failed to show the copy of MBs and bills and this clearly shows that they have been protecting those engineers who played heavily with the government funds for their personal use. Despite witnessing an open fraud in the polytechnic college at Sathra, PWD top brass is shockingly saying the department is satisfied with the work. Likewise, nearly crores of rupees have been misused on CRF Chandak-Mandi road and tainted engineers prepared bills many times, but a top PWD engineer refused to clear the bill sensing massive fraud in the ongoing project by doing work out of the project report. Rs 192.00 lacs payment made under CRF and Rs 498.00 lacs payments made under the languishing. Majority of financial frauds are being reported from Sub division Mandi, but in a shocking state of affairs, SE and Chief Engineer PWD Jammu are openly protecting tainted officials due to political reasons as those who scripted these frauds in Mandi sub division belong to a political family. This clearly shows that top PWD officials have taken everything for granted and are openly sheltering those who remained part and parcel of brazen misuse of funds in Sub division Mandi.
