With just over a month to go before Jammu and Srinagar host a major international event in the G20 Summit, the local administration is leaving no stone unturned to prepare the summer capital of Srinagar.

Srinagar will host the third meeting of G20 Tourism Working Group under India’s G20 Presidency from May 22 to 24.

Divisional Commissioner Kashmir, Vijay Kumar Bidhuri, on Tuesday, April 11, took a firsthand review of the ongoing work. He also issued a clear direction to all officials and contractors to complete the work by his set deadlines. Bidhuri also set a deadline of 10 days to finish most of the pending work.

The Divisional Commissioner sought feedback from the participants regarding the needs and requirements for meeting work completion deadlines.

During the meeting, Bidhuri took a detailed work-wise status from the concerned officers and contractors involved in the respective works.

The officers and contractors provided Bidhuri with updates on the status of their work. They also presented timelines for finishing the work.

The Divisional Commissioner gave a deadline of 10 days to most of the works, including the concrete work, laying of footpaths, tiling and drainage works, underground works, landscaping and turfing that are still going on, as well as the road blacktopping and installation of signage.

Bidhuri instructed all the concerned officers to check if there is a need for labour. He also directed the Labour Commissioner, J&K, to provide labour for them to meet the demand.

Bidhuri also directed them to begin working on multiple tasks simultaneously to ensure the on-time completion of all works. The Divisional Commissioner gave a deadline of April 23 to complete the blacktopping works.

The Divisional Commissioner also reprimanded some of the officers and contractors for the slow pace of work and cautioned them against proceeding with such an attitude. Bidhuri made it clear that action would follow against those who are negligent.
