THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Minister for Public Works G Sudhakaran filed a police complaint against a contractor accusing him of not completing the resurfacing of the Mangalapuram-Karamana reach of the National Highway 66 within the stipulated six months, and violating the agreement with Public Works Department (PWD) and flouting the safety norms. The Minister lodged the complaint with the office of Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP), Cyber City Sub-Division, Kazhakuttam.

The PWD (NH) wing had signed an agreement with Nasaruddin AR, Managing Director, Revive Construction Company (India) Ltd, Kilimanoor, on March 16 for resurfacing the 22-km NH 66 corridor, excluding the PMG-Thampanoor reach under the TRDCL. The six months given as per the contract ended on September 22 and the work had not been completed, the Minister said in the complaint.

The two-km stretch near Kazhakuttam is ridden with potholes and the contractor had failed to complete the work despite the directive of the Chief Engineer, other supervisors and the office of the Minister for Public Works. It is learnt that the contractor had taken up work of the Adoor-Kazhakuttam model corridor, being executed under KSTP Phase II, on sub-contract.

The Minister said the contractor had flouted all rules and PWD manual and had executed the work only for 29 days. The lapses committed by the contractor entailed criminal and civil action. The contractor has also failed to reply to a letter sent by the Superintending Engineer on September 27. The Minister said the government was considering cancelling of the contract.

The contractor has also flouted the safety norms and agreement. Several road accidents had occurred on the stretch and traffic snarls were a regular feature on the NH corridor. Pedestrians were having a tough time and transporting the sick and terminally ill to hospitals was time consuming. The contractor was guilty under the IPC and the government wanted action to be taken against him to ensure that no contractor indulged in such acts, he said.
