Kishan Kapoor, who  is the Food, Civil supplies & Consumer Affairs minister of Himachal Pradesh, and is also the  member of the legislative assembly from Dharamshala assembly constituency of the state has raised his serious objections over the site  of Tulip Garden in Narwana  at the out skirts of Dharamshala.  Kapoor said,” it is the clear wastage of 7 crore of rupees sanctioned by the Asian Development Bank for development of tourism in the area. The Garden is being developed adjacent to Noudrani rivulet, and could be washed away if it floods.” He added that the cemented approach road have already damaged at several points.

Minister who visited the site today said that the misuse of the money will not be allowed. He said that the beauty of such garden could have added to the attraction of the Smart City but its development in a rivulet is a bad idea.

Kapoor said, “In the year 2008 Dhumal lead state government passed this plan for the important area of the city.”

He said that concerned department and the contractor are responsible for the bad quality of the work done so far and shall be asked for. The project was started during Vir Bhadra Singh rule.

SDM Dharamshala Dharmesh Ramotra was also present along with others at the site.
