Port Blair, Mar 30: The Multipurpose Hall at Buniyadabad is turning into a unique monument as still it is left for display purpose only instead of multipurpose use for the residents of the area since its completion.
The Multipurpose hall in Ward No. 8, Buniyadabad has been in a ready condition for 3 years now after its inauguration on 14th August, 2015 by Shri Kuldeep Rai Sharma, PCC President in the presence of Shri M. Arumugam the then Chairperson, PBMC and Shri K. Ganeshan, Chairperson, F.T.A. Sub-Committee PBMC. But it has been left as a monument without any proper use for the people of the area. The Port Blair Municipal Council is not allowing people to arrange any functions in this community hall.
The people of the area are celebrating special occasions as Birthdays, Sankranti, wedding receptions, etc. in the playground despite having a ready Multipurpose Community Hall at Buniyadabad. But this building fully comes into use only during elections as Polling Booth.
“The authorities should not let the public property rot under useless condition. The construction of a Multipurpose Hall Building is a matter of crores, which cannot be misused, at least not as a tombstone. The guarantee of a new building structure is approx 30 years and this hall has already completed its 3 years without any public use. Moreover the PBMC has deputed a watchman for the community hall, whose deployment is also a bad deal with the public money,” people say.
Speaking to this correspondent, Shri K. Ganeshan, Councilor (Ward No. 8) said, “A legal case on this Community hall is under process in the court and court has issued an order that we are following.”
