PWS IPR secretary Tagam Yitor informed that on 30 September, the societies had lodged an FIR with the state vigilance department, accusing the RWD and executing agency of misappropriating funds by executing sub-standard and low quality work.
According to DPR, Yitor expressed that there was a gross violation of the detail project report (DPR) as the work was not executed.
Yitor stated "According to DPR, in the hilly side, there ought to be a widening of 4.5 meters, which has not been done, 4 meters of widening should have been constructed in the Valley side (The roadside) but it has not been done, and 1.5 to 2.5 meters height cutting ought to have been done but it has not been done, and 15.8 to 29 km fresh cutting has not been done "
Further stating Yitor bellowed, "We are totally very saddened and distressed by this kind of work by the department, Bilkul kam nahi huaye". They demanded that the SIC investigate the length of the road as it is allegedly “overlapping the existing PWD road, with malafide intention to gobble up government money.”
"Pura payment hogya but kam huaye nai, isliye humne usko SIC ko diayatha " claimed Yitor.
"According to the meeting held in the Circuit house participated by the Paat Welfare, Dulom Welfare society along with various members from the village and the concerned department, the authority accepted that there are certain work to be done and by march, the department shall complete the road, I have the evidence " added Yitor
"Yaha hum jhut bolke kuch nahi milega , aaplog spot visit karnese thik he, naki kuch engineering department ko leke site visit karana" expressed Yitor.
He further concluded by saying "Sabka saath Sabka vikash" , a beautiful quote made by the government, that should be enlightened practically with the people of Kamle and Upper Subansiri.
The society expressed a ray of hope for early deliverance of Justice by the Pema Khandu led government.
