Agartala, September 21: Chief Minister Prof. Dr Manik Saha on Thursday said that the state government will not compromise on the implementation of development projects in the public interest and the development work should be executed in a timely manner while upholding high quality standards.
He further said that the government is committed to taking the state forward in various fields and will do whatever it takes to achieve this goal.
Dr. Saha said this after his visits to various locations in Agartala, including Muktodhara Auditorium, Nazrul Kalakshetra Auditorium, the Forensic Centre, TIT, and the site for the proposed high-rise multi-storied office building (B+G+14) in Gurkhabasti.
“Today morning, I first visited Muktodhara Auditorium and identified some issues. I directed officials to promptly address the maintenance concerns and urged them to expedite the repairs. Subsequently, I visited Nazrul Kalakshetra Auditorium and instructed them to rectify all the problems in the building. It is our duty and responsibility to ensure the upkeep of such structures,” said Dr. Saha.
Dr. Saha mentioned that during his visit to the Satyajit Ray Film and Television Institute (SRFTI), he observed students actively participating in classes and expressing enthusiasm. They also expressed a desire for long-term courses.
“I also inspected the new construction at TIT. Since 50% of the previous building was allocated to the Law University, we are now constructing a new building. I discussed this with the engineers. Later, I visited the Tripura Forensic Centre and witnessed firsthand how officials are combating crimes related to NDPS, POCSO, and handling the identification of arms and counterfeit currency,” Chief Minister told reporters.
Furthermore, the Chief Minister provided an update on the high-rise multi-storied office building (B+G+14) in Gurkhabasti, stating, “This building will house all offices under one roof. I laid the foundation stone for this project and today, I came to assess its progress. I am optimistic that it will be completed within the next 2.5 years. PM Modi consistently emphasizes the importance of development, and we are aligned with that vision. I have also instructed officials not to delay maintenance activities.”
