People's Review - - NEWS - By Our Re­porter

The Com­mis­sion for the In­ves­ti­ga­tion of Abuse of Au­thor­ity (CIAA) has fi­nally filed a case against the owner and chair of the con­tro­ver­sial Pappu Con­struc­tion Com­pany, in­clud­ing law­maker Hari Narayan Prasad Sah Rau­ni­yar. The con­struc­tion com­pany has earned bad name for low qual­ity works over the years. The CIAA filed a case against 12 in­di­vid­u­als, in­clud­ing law­maker Rau­ni­yar and gov­ern­ment of­fi­cials, for their al­leged in­volve­ment in build­ing a sub­stan­dard bridge over the Babai River in Jab­dighat of Bardiya dis­trict. With a cor­rup­tion case filed against him at the Spe­cial Court in Kathmandu, Rau­ni­yar’s mem­ber­ship of the Fed­eral Par­lia­ment has been sus­pended. He was elected from Parsa dis­trict-3 in the House of Rep­re­sen­ta­tives. He is from the Fed­eral So­cial­ist Fo­rum Nepal. The bridge con­nect­ing the dis­trict head­quar­ters Gu­lariya and Bar­bardiya Mu­nic­i­pal­ity col­lapsed im­me­di­ately af­ter its com­ple­tion even be­fore it was of­fi­cially handed over to the De­part­ment of Roads (DoR). The anti-graft body had filed the cor­rup­tion case af­ter in­ves­ti­gat­ing com­pli­ant that the con­trac­tors and con­cerned gov­ern­ment au­thor­i­ties col­luded to use sub­stan­dard ma­te­ri­als, and the bridge was tilted even while it was un­der con­struc­tion.

Rau­ni­yar’s son and Chair­man of the com­pany Su­mit Rau­ni­yar, Chiefs of Di­vi­sion Road Of­fice dur­ing the bridge con­struc­tion pe­riod BhanuYa­dav, Ra­jesh Ku­mar Ya­dav and Manoj Shrestha, of­fi­ci­at­ing chiefs of the of­fice Nawa Raj K. C., engi­neers Dipen­dra Ba­hadur Bista, Prem Prasad Chuwai and Hari Ba­hadur Bista, sub-engi­neers Karma Ten­z­ing Ta­mang, and Govinda Gaire, and owner of Ever­est Engi­neer­ing Con­sul­tant Kr­ishna Dev Ya­dav also faced the CIAA case .
