AYODHYA, June 30: The Ayodhya district administration has constituted a committee to probe the alleged gross negligence in the construction of the 14-km-long Ram Path which suffered cave-ins at multiple spots in just two pre-monsoon showers.
This comes a day after the Uttar Pradesh government suspended six officials of civic agencies for alleged gross negligence following the road cave-ins and waterlogging at several sections of the newly-built Ram Path.
“A committee of all the concerned departments has been constituted which will investigate and submit its report within 15 days. This is to check problems with regard to sewage chambers/manholes where depressions have occurred,” Ayodhya Divisional Commissioner Gaurav Dayal said on Sunday.
He said the road has been constructed in standard quality but the excessive rains led to these issues. There is an area on the stretch where the sewer line was laid without proper padding of construction material, he said, adding there were potholes at 6-7 places.
He also said that about 5,500 chambers have been built in the entire Ayodhya in the last two years, out of which there are only eight-nine spots which have faced such problems due to the excessive rainfall. The district received about 30 per cent of the average rainfall of the entire rainy season in just two days which caused the depressions, he said. (PTI)
