Haridwar. The reality of the quality of construction work of Atal Bihari Vajpayee State Guest House came to the fore within three years. Rain water is dripping from the roofs of the guest house, which was built at a cost of about 17 crores in the year 2017. The special thing is that the rooms of the guest house where rain water is filling are VVIP rooms, in which the Chief Minister and Union Ministers are accommodated. The situation of negligence and delay is that despite repeatedly complaining about the problem to the concerned department, neither any repair is being done and the contract manufacturing company is not even responding to the complaint.

Guest house’s arrangement officer Girdhar Prasad Bahuguna said that many times information was given to the departmental officers for this, but so far the guest house could not be repaired. On his request, Mela Officer Deepak Rawat instructed the PWD officials to repair the guest house. PWD officials have inspected the building several times, although the repair work has not started yet.
