Habiganj stadium constuction moves at slow pace

Construction of Habiganj Modern Stadium is moving at snail pace despite having missed the second deadline bercause of the assigned- company’s inaction and carelessness.

Consequently, there is a level of uncertainty that is prevalant among the local sports lovers whether the third deadline for completion will be met.

Sources at Habiganj Krira Sangstha, the district sports authority, said the estimated cost of the stadium is Tk17 crore and its construction was initially supposed to end in March, 2012. Later, the deadline was extended for the second time to December last year as the construction company could not end the task timely. Later, the company missed the deadline again and asked the government for another extention, which granted until June this year. 

Witness said so far 80% of the construction for the stadium have been completed while comparatively fewer workers were working on the site.

The sources also stated that local players threatened to make public protests against the company unless the constuction is completed in due time.

Farhad Hossain Koli, General Secretary of Zila Krira Sangstha, blamed the assigned company for the delay, saying “In the way the construction is progressing, it can easily be assumed that the company will also miss the third deadline.”

Abdur Rauf, vice president of Zila Krira Sangstha and Habiganj Additional Deputy Commissioner, said a committee was formed to look after the stadium’s construction. Moreover, the local administration has kept the contractor under pressure to finish the constuction on time. “We have already informed the higher authorities about the callousness of the contractor,” Rauf stated.

Mostafizur Rahman, manager of Meghna Traders the company that is reponsible for the stadium’s constuction, said they missed the first deadline because of incessant nationwide hartal and blockade programmes enforced by the BNP-led 18-party alliance last year.
