The Deputy Commissioner was also briefed on the issues facing the community by the Sarpanch of the relevant Panchayat. The Deputy Commissioner listened carefully and then requested that the relevant agencies resolve the issues within a certain time frame.

The NABARD road construction site in Harni was also visited unexpectedly by the District Development Commissioner. To further integrate the area’s surface transportation networks, a road spanning 7 km from Kasyote Harmutha to Gursai Mughalan is now under construction. The DC went to the culvert site where a buffalo had been washed to its death because to the contractor’s carelessness during a storm.

The DC was joined by local officials and activists including Tehsildar Mendhar, Rahul Baskotra, Sarpanch Sameena Aras Khan, and Nambaadar.

The Deputy Commissioner was updated by residents and authorities on the development of the NABARD road and other matters. As development continued on the sports facility in the hamlet of Harni, the DC paid a visit. He ordered the stadium’s contractor to speed up construction. For the sake of the people, he also ordered the PWD’s Executive Engineer to finish installing the culvert in the NABARD road by the deadline.

The DC has ordered the police to keep a close eye on the water and send real-time alerts to all relevant authorities in the case of any unpleasant situations caused by the recent downpour.

The DC then travelled to Mendhar to pay his respects at the Ziarat Chotey Shah and take part in the Urs. The construction efforts in the shrine were also inspected by him.
