Baramulla: The contractors of Rafiabad Tuesday blocked Baramullah Kupwara road in protest against Roads and Building department for not releasing their payment.
Under the banner of Rafiabad Contractors Association they assembled in Watergam in front of the sub division office of R&B and shouted slogans against Assistant Executive Engineer.
President RCA Ajaz Ahmad said, “AEE ordered them to patch up Rohama to Brandub road and Tragpora to Pazilpora road. He also told some local contractors to culvert pipe for Rohama road last year without giving proper information and advertisements. But once the contractors completed their work AEE didn’t released their payment. He also does not release original payment of contractors on the eve of Edd ul Fiter.”
AEE Nazir Ahmad despite repeated calls didn’t responded.
