Apart from iron rods erected a decade earlier, nothing further has been done till date to ensure its completion,” Sangma alleged.Sangma while adding that the site of the construction now lies overgrown with shrubs due to long abandonment has urged authorities to conduct an inquiry into the matter take action against the erring contractor.
