The vending zone is being developed at the location of old vegetable market in Sunam city.Notably, Cabinet Minister Aman Arora had conducted a surprise inspection of the modern vending zone being constructed at a cost of Rs. 1 crore and found that the concerned contractor was using sub-standard bricks in sewage manhole chambers.
Mr Aman Arora pulled up the officials and contractor for the lapse and directed to replace the material immediately. After the directions of the Cabinet Minister all the substandard material was replaced by the contractor the very next day.
He also directed the officials and contractors to complete the construction work of the modern vending zone before March 31 so that the economically weak people of Rehdi Fahdi could take advantage of this dedicated market space and earn livelihood.
The cabinet minister has made it clear that the Punjab government will not tolerate any form of corruption and those who misuse the funds by any means will be dealt strictly. He said that if any official, employee or contractor found misusing government funds, strict action will be initiated against him.
He expressed satisfaction over the materials being used in the ongoing construction works, while instructing the contractor and officials that the malpractice of looting adopted by the previous governments will not be tolerated at all by the Aam Aadmi Party government under the leadership of Chief Minister Punjab Bhagwant Mann.
He said that government funds should be used in a transparent manner which should also reflect in the projects.
