RAJSHAHI, June 13 (BSS): Falling behind the schedule for at least six years, the work on modernisation of the 800-seat Rajshahi district council auditorium is now at the final stage.

The Rajshahi City Corporation (RCC) started the renovation of the auditorium on November 4, 2011 with an estimated cost of Tk 46.9 million.

The project was scheduled to be accomplished in June 2012.

The then district council administration gave the responsibility of implementing the development work to RCC due to its shortage of technological knowhow and manpower.

Ashraful Haque, chief engineer of RCC, said work on infrastructure development, seating installation, modern electricity supply and sound system were completed with the allocated money. But, all the scheduled works could not be completed within the stipulated time due to fund constraint, he informed.

Recently, the RCC got Tk 12 million from Fazley Hossain Badsha, MP, for completing the unfinished work on commissioning air-condition and sound system in the auditorium.

"We are hopeful about completion of the work within a shortest possible time", said Mr Haque.
