Deputy Chief Minister G Parameshwara took officials to task on Monday for the slow pace of development works in the city.
In a meeting held on Monday with Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike and Bangalore Development Authority (BDA) officials, he directed the officials to complete the tasks within the given deadline, as the tenders have been called for most works, but not processed further.
According to sources, Parameshwara, who is also the Bangalore Development Minister, directed the officials to prioritise projects and finish them at the earliest.
‘Not only will the government spend extra money for the delay, we will also have to face people’s ire for delaying projects,’ Parameshwara added.
He is expected to conduct a review meeting on January 4th or 5th to know the status of the works.
“There is no specific details of the properties owned by the BDA. Some engineers may have it. But it is not found in the register. An audit has to be conducted regarding the properties owned by the BDA. Later an audit about the BBMP properties should be made. This will help us to know the resources we have,” he said.
