A day after he inspected the site of the much delayed Signature Bridge, deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia registered his annoyance in a strongly worded report that charged the bureaucratic brass led by chief secretary Anshu Prakash with not cooperating with the government on the project.
In the report that the government will submit to Delhi high court during a hearing on July 13, Sisodia recorded that senior IAS officers in charge of the departments involved in the project “chose not to attend the site inspection” with him on Tuesday.
