It has been alleged that substandard material was used in the construction of the gallery after Saturday’s tragic accident at the Muradnagar crematorium in Ghaziabad. People complained to the municipal and administration authorities. If the municipality and administration officials had taken timely action, 23 people would not have lost their lives. The former municipal husband also stopped construction, alleging inferior materials.
The Nagar Palika Parishad had eight months ago signed an agreement for the renovation of the cremation ground on Bampa Road at a cost of Rs 55 lakh. The cremation ground complex had to have a gallery on the pillars at the main gate in addition to the place of the funeral. It is said that when the contractor started construction, the locals accused him of installing substandard construction materials.
In October, the column was erected and a letter was placed on it. Shortly before removing the shuttering from the letter. According to locals, the gallery was built 50 feet long and 23 feet wide. The pillars made for lanterns had weak foundations. That’s why rainwater goes into the foundation from Sunday morning and the pillars fall off.
Locals complained that the incident probably would not have happened if the municipal authorities had paid attention to the allegation of timely installation of substandard construction materials. At the same time, Niharika Chauhan, executive officer of Nagar Palika Parishad Muradnagar, said that an investigation was underway into how the letter was read. Something will become clear after the investigation.
Construction was stopped six months ago
The tender was issued by the municipality from the amount published by the 14th Finance Commission for development work. In the process, the tender was won by a Ghaziabad resident contractor for Rs 55 lakh. Radhekishan Aurora, husband of former Paladhyaksha Rekha Arora, stopped construction six months ago alleging that it was inferior. Councilor Bindu Tayagi also said that yellow bricks should be laid on the wall.
