Chief secretary Utpal Kumar Singh ensures the under construction of the International Sports Stadium to be transferred to the concerned department on Thursday. The stadium to be constructed at Gaulapar in Haldwani had to be completed within March 2019 without fail.
Utpal Kumar also inspected the site for the modern ISBT at Teenpani in Haldwani during the inspection for the stadium on the day. There are many works still incomplete to make the stadium match the International standards. He also inspected the forest land near the Uttarakhand Open University where the modern ISBT would be constructed. Considering the population of Haldwani which is an entry point to Kumaon, it is the top priority of the State Government to complete the construction within the given time.
The Chief Secretary said that no objection certificate will be secured from the forest department, after selection of the land, and no special problems are faced in securing no- objection certificate from the forest department for developmental works.
