Sports minister Ajay Maken has blamed the “obstructionist” role of former sports minister Mani Shankar Aiyar for the infrastructural delays in the build-up to last year’s Commonwealth Games (CWG), which eventually led to the escalation of costs.In a letter to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh dated July 8 this year, Maken said: “Aiyar kept presenting a rosy picture about the progress in infrastructural preparedness, but he actually did everything to hinder and obstruct work, which eventually led to delays and huge cost escalations.”Aiyar has maliciously opined in the media that he forewarned about escalation of budgetary sanctions of the OC (organising committee) – an issue that not only does not stand subject to factual verification, but also appears frivolous.Even as he wrote about increased financial sanctions to the OC, Aiyar as minister in-charge approved, duly the Cabinet note giving Rs. 767cr to the OC.”In his response, a copy of which was accessed by activist Subhash Chandra Agrawal through a Right To Information application, Maken noted that Aiyar did not operationalise the Apex committee which was to lord over the OC, ” even after holding three of its meetings, decisions taken by which were duly adhered to”.”I also point out that in expressing his inability to head the OC through a communication to you, Aiyar displayed gross irresponsibility of a shirker rather than a leader who could take charge and deliver,” wrote Maken.Quoting a letter from Aiyar to the Prime Minister dated October 25, 2007, Maken said: “Aiyar did an extremely dichotomous, contradictory and self indicting job of dealing with the infrastructure related to the Games.”advertisementIn his letter to the PM, Aiyar wrote that he was “in my humble view, and on the basis of nearly two years of closely monitoring developments, I am persuaded that whereas, thanks to the agencies concerned, the physical infrastructure will go up as scheduled and will substantially meet exacting international quality requirements, the organisation of the Games in an economic, efficient and tasteful manner cannot be assured with the present organisational structure.”Maken quoted the findings of the Shunglu committee which conceded that the credentials of jailed CWG OC chairman Suresh Kalmadi were never in question but it was his conduct of the Games that was in question.He also pointed that the “favourable clique” of the sports minister and sports secretaries during the BJP-led NDA government’s regime in 2003 led to the appointment of Kalmadi as the OC chief.

Kolkata: Mayor Firhad Hakim, who is also in charge of the state Urban Development and Municipal Affairs department, will send a proposal to the state government to designate Kolkata Municipal Corporation (KMC) for maintenance of all city roads and Kolkata Metropolitan Development Authority (KMDA) for maintenance of all city bridges and flyovers.The proposal will also contain the appeal to designate the state Public Works Department (PWD) to carry out maintenance of bridges and flyovers in the districts. Also Read – Rain batters Kolkata, cripples normal life”In recent times there have been issues, particularly over maintenance of roads and flyovers in the city and passing over responsibility to one another. If the entire maintenance work is done by KMC for roads and KMDA for the flyovers, then work can be done quickly and in a smoother way. So we will be sending a proposal to the government,” Hakim said after attending a high level meeting at the KMC headquarters with officials from KMDA, PWD, Housing & Infrastructure Development Corporation (HIDCO), West Bengal Pollution Control Board etc. Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Mercedes car in Kolkata, 2 pedestrians killedHowever, KMC or KMDA will collect maintenance charge from the respective agencies which own different roads or flyovers. It may be mentioned that during the monsoon season this year, when the roads in the city had developed potholes at a number of places, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee had instructed KMC to carry out road repair and later charge fees from the agencies. Apart from KMC, there are roads in the city that are maintained by the state PWD, state Irrigation department, KMDA, HRBC etc. Kolkata Port Trust is also responsible for road maintenance in a large part of the Port area.
