CM warns UD Department on Convention Hall

ITANAGAR, May 17: An upset Chief Minister Pema Khandu has warned the Urban Development (UD) Department to complete the construction of Convention Hall at Indira Gandhi Park by December 2017, with caution that failure to do so may attract necessary action from the state government.
He said this after inspecting the ongoing construction work of the hall, along with Urban Development (UD) Minister, Nabam Rebia and UD Parliamentary Secretary, Techi Kaso.
The project’s foundation stone was laid in November 2011 with an estimated cost of Rs 3,125 lakh and was supposed to be completed within two years from the date of commencement of work.
Taking serious note of the delay, the Chief Minister asked the department officials to gear up the work assuring full support from the government to meet the project deadline. He asked them to work round the clock on shift basis and to depute more manpower and engineers.
He said that the project is of high importance as the state today lacks facilities to host large convention of meetings.
The main hall is expected to have a seating capacity of 500 people with basic amenities, like restaurants, food court, office with media room, amphitheatre, and a changing room.
The Chief Minister also inspected the 100-seat conference hall and two 50-seat conference halls. He took round of the basic amenities, like toilet and the parking facilities for 300 cars.
He further discussed on the construction of two-lane approach road for the hall, assuring to take up with concerned body the matter of eviction for the construction of road.
