Ramkrishan UpadhyayTribune News ServiceChandigarh, July 11Rain has halted the ongoing works of recarpeting in the city, causing harassment to commuters.
Rajiv Kathuria, a Sector 21 resident, said the MC scraped the road, which worsened the situation.
The engineering wing of the MC had kicked-off road recarpeting and construction works late this time due to shortage of funds.
The recarpeting works were started after the UT Administration released Rs 50 crore for the purpose last year.
Recarpeting was overdue as rain had already damaged roads, putting lives of commuters at risk.
