Chief Minister Unhappy With BHEL

Asks To Finish Project On Time, Cautions Officials
Suratgarh,Bikaner,  Chief Minister Smt. Vasundhara Raje inspected the under-construction Units 7 & 8 of Suratgarh Super Critical Thermal Power Project during her Sarkar Aapke Dwar campaign on Wednesday. She expressed her anguish before the officials of the Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) for delay in completing the project. The Chairman of the BHEL, a Government of India Undertaking, was accompanying the CM during her visit.
Smt. Raje stated that her government was committed to provide 24-hours domestic power supply and 6-7 hours supply for agricultural works to its people. Therefore, even a short-term delay in completion of this important project would not be tolerated, she said.
The Chief Minister said that the BHEL had failed in meeting its deadline to complete the project works as per the contract. The state government handed over entire responsibility of these power generation units to the BHEL and the company had breached trust by not finishing the work as per the time schedule agreed upon, she said.
Smt. Raje made it clear to that the BHEL should finish the project in time after setting new deadlines for itself, otherwise the state government would be forced to think of the fresh proposals for the project from other companies. She said that completion of the project had already been delayed by 7 months. The BHEL had been advised to complete the project before onset of Rabi season in 2016.
Earlier, the Chief Minister held a high-level review meeting on this project late on Tuesday night and expressed concerns over its slow progress.
During her visit to the power plant project site, some labourers complained about non-payment of their salaries. The Chief Minister took-up this issue with the representatives of Ms. Power Mac, who provide labour services, and directed them to make the payment of salaries in time. She further suggested the company officials to give employment to local labourers as well.
