     Raipur, December 30, 2008: Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Dr Raman Singh today apparently expressed unhappiness over the works of the former Panchayat Raj and Rural Development Minister Ajay Chandrakar, who lost the recently held assembly election.

      Chhattisgarh should have the name as a state with best roads and to have that there should be a regular monitoring of the road construction works of the Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana, Singh told a review meeting of the Panchayat Raj and Rural Development Department here today.

     Amid reports of irregularities in road construction works and high level probe by the Centre, he said roads also reflected the image of the government hence any one involved in irregularities, whether officials or contractors, should not be spared.

      Asking all the departments to maintain coordination among themselves, the Chief Minister said any contractors involved in irregularities should be blacklisted by the Rural Development Department and should not be given works by other departments also.

     Chandrakar was the Panchayat Raj and Rural Development Minister in the previous Government and alleging him as the icon of corruption of the Raman government, the leaders of the main opposition Congress attacked the BJP government during the electioneering and Chandrakar also lost the election from Congress from his Kurud segment.
