Dissatisfied with the tardy pace of de-silting of the flood spill channel in Srinagar, secretary Public Health Engineering and Irrigation and Flood Control departments Farooq Ahmad Shah Thursday directed the officers to deploy additional men and machinery to improve pace of work so that it is completed within the given deadline.

Reviewing the progress of work on de-silting of Flood Spill Channel in Srinagar, Shah took a serious note of slow progress of work at some spots, an official spokesman said. 

During the meeting, it was observed that fencing along the FSC has been damaged at many places and to address this, Shah directed the officials to restore the same at the earliest, the spokesman added. 

The meeting was attended by chief engineer PHE, I&FC Abdul Wahid, superintending engineers and executive engineers. Other officers of the allied departments were also present.

Shah said that all the flood protection related works shall be taken on priority at every place and completed as early as possible. He said the government is committed to tackle any flood-like situation and is working on measures to prevent such scenarios in future.

The secretary also called for zero-tolerance to any encroachment along water bodies and passed strict directions to the officers to ensure that no encroachment takes place in their respective areas, the spokesman said. 

He said the officers concerned will be responsible to any encroachment taking place in their respective areas and action will be taken against the officials as per rules.

The meeting was informed that de-silting and related flood protection works are going apace at Shariefabad, Naidkhai, Padshahi Bagh, Rambagh and Bemina.

Later, Shah visited Mehjoor Nagar and Rambagh to inspect the progress of flood protection work.
