Kolkata: State Urban Development and Municipal Affairs minister Firhad Hakim on Tuesday held the erstwhile Left Front government responsible for the collapse of Posta Flyover saying that the agency assigned to complete the project had sketched a faulty design.

While responding to a question in the Assembly, Hakim said: "The design of the flyover was faulty.
We came to know that the former Urban Development minister Asok Bhattacharya was forced to engage a firm that had been blacklisted earlier.
