Unhappy with the state of Bhopal roads, CM abolishes administration of investment project


Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh): Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on Friday abolished with immediate effect the Capital Project Administration (CPA), an organization created for the planned development, beautification and conservation of the environment in Bhopal, following the state of the roads after the rains.

The CPA was a wing of the Department of Town Planning and Housing.

In a video released by his office, Chouhan was heard asking officials at a meeting how many agencies deal with roads in the state capital.

An official replied that there were four agencies: the Department of Public Works, the CPA, the Bhopal Municipal Corporation and the Bhopal Development Administration.

The chief minister asked what four agencies are used for.

“The CPA is abolished today with immediate effect. There is no need for a CPA,” he said.

There was no coordination between the agencies, the chief minister added, asking officials why the roads had not been repaired before the onset of the rainy season.
