'BMIC not under PWD'

Speaking to reporters, he said: “I do not know anything as  the project does not come under the PWD.”

This reply came when reporters asked him certain questions regarding land allotment to the BMIC, the promoters of NICE road. The PWD is the nodal department for the project implementation.

It is the Public Works Department  which gives permission to the KIADB to acquire land for the project and prepares agenda for the high level committee meeting to review the project.
