|Description||Resentment prevails among commuters over the delay in the construction of a bus stop proposed during the BJP regime. Commuters are now demanding that the construction process should be expedited and the bus stop completed before the Assembly elections next year.
Transport Minister GS Bali and other officers of the department had inspected the site of the bus stop at Chogan on the Pathankot-Mandi National Highway here twice during the past two years, but no result had been witnessed.
The Dhumal government had proposed the bus stand on the premises of a dilapidated veterinary hospital and transferred land to the Transport Department in July 2012.
The Animal Husbandry Department shifted the veterinary hospital from the proposed site for the bus stop in February and the Transport Department took over the possession of the premises.
Bali had announced in February that the department had planned to construct the bus stop under the Build-Operate-Transfer (BOT) policy. He had claimed that the department would float tenders for the construction of the bus stop and the process would be completed in 60 days.
He had also announced that the construction would be completed in 15 months after awarding the tender. But the structure of the veterinary hospital had not even been demolished yet.
Vijay Sapiya, Divisional Manager, Himachal Road Transport Corporation (HRTC), Dharamsala, said the tender for the demolition of the hospital building had been awarded for Rs 3.75 lakh and submitted to the head office for the final approval. He said the department would prefer the construction of the bus stop through the BOT scheme. If no private organisation evinced interest, the department would build the bus stop on its own.

|Description||After over 15 years, Huda has finally managed to complete the construction of Sector 12A Road. The road connects the sector — one of Gurgaon's oldest — with other areas, including the bus stand, Sheetla Mata Road and sectors 5 and 7.
Huda had acquired land for the sector's main road in 1981, but could not take its possession for several years. And for the past 15 years, road construction was held up due to litigation and encroachment by the land's owner, who had dragged Huda to court even after taking compensation. Only last year, the urban development body began construction, following a favourable ruling from the Punjab and Haryana high court.
"After the high court's ruling, it was decided to construct the road, which was pending for more than 15 years," Huda administrator Yashpal Yadav told TOI on Monday. "Gurgaon has faced a lot of problems in the recent past due to some incomplete projects, and all such projects need to be completed in the interest of the public at large," he added.
Residents, who had for years blamed Huda for the dilapidated condition of the sector's main road, have now heaved a sigh of relief. "It has come as a big relief for local residents. We had been complaining to Huda for years to construct the road. For all these years, we faced problems due to incomplete road and the rainy season used to be a nightmare," said OP Kataria, president of Sector 12A RWA.
