Three LGED officials asked to explain
Show cause notices have been issued to three officials of Local Government Engineering Department (LGED) over alleged corruption and irregularities in building of a newly constructed road in Aditmari upazila.
Five days after completion of the one kilometre road, the carpeting wore away on Sunday.
The officials are upazila engineer Fazlul Haque, sub-assistant engineer Zakir Hossain and work-assistant Ashraful Alam.
Lalmonirhat LGED Executive Engineer SM Zakiur Rahman also issued a show cause notice to Shahidul Islam, contractor of the department, for re-carpeting the road.
The three officials were asked to reply why they did not monitor properly while the road was built with low quality and less quantity materials within three days. The contractor was also asked to reply to the notice within the same time, said the executive engineer.
