He said Contractor has failed to provide service for CCTV cameras even after signing the agreement of maintenance. The only camera which was installed near MIBK High School, Khandepar, was removed one month back without the replacement of stand by the camera to the pole
He requested the Sarpanch/Secretary of the Panchayat to conduct a detail Inquiry into the matter and to take strong action on the Contractor by imposing a fine & FIR should be registered at the Ponda police station. So kindly do the needful at the earliest.
