Delhi government orders Green Park multi-level parking incident to be investigated


The Delhi government on Saturday ordered an investigation into the collapse of part of the multi-level parking lot in Green Park and ordered authorities to submit a report within 15 days.

Addressing a press conference, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said: “Within a year the parking lot collapsed. Thank goodness there was no one there at the time, otherwise there could have been a big accident, but the vehicles were damaged.

He added that the Delhi government took the matter very seriously and ordered an investigation.

“I asked the director of local organizations to have it inspected by the chief engineer of the Department of Public Works (PWD) within 15 days and indicate what was missing in the construction of the parking lot and identify those responsible. of collapse. “

He added that appropriate action will be taken against those responsible according to the findings of the investigation.

The Deputy Chief Minister also said: “We have learned from the newspapers that the security audit of the facility was not even carried out. If a gap is found in the investigation, action will be taken. “

Aam Aadmi (AAP) party leaders Atishi, Saurabh Bhardwaj and Somnath Bharti held a press conference on the issue and targeted the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD).
