Lucknow: Gomti River Front development project in Lucknow, the much-talked about project of Uttar Pradesh irrigation department but strangely kept out of the list of 22 dream projects of Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav, is more in the news because of its opacity with regards to earth work, various environmental clearances and the efficiency of officers engaged in the project.

So much so that the Chief Minister had to put on record that all clearances should be in place with regards to this project this impinged on changing the geological aspects of a running river. The officers involved in the project refused to furnish details of massive earth work and the investment of money despite relentless efforts of the newztrack.com correspondent.

Roop Singh Yadav, an executive engineer who has been made in charge of this mega-project belying his seniority, when contacted, flatly declined to give details about earthwork about which a lot of concerns are being raised. Yadav, an executive engineer of Sharda Canal, Lucknow division, gave an ambiguous reply that no single rate was fixed for sand filling and it can be estimated once the project was completed. He was also clueless about the environmental clearance about the project.

Another point that has raised the eyebrows is that the companies working on this project are blacklisted in other countries and it was pointed out by none other than the metroman E Shreedharan.
