The reports also claim that the work was delayed during the G 20 summit meetings held in the city when major construction works were stopped. The work was also stopped on the day when Palkhi procession passed from the city. These are some reasons which according to the concerned officials have added to the delay in the work. Some of the works such as removal of road crossing, widening of the footpath, making an arrangement of alternate routes for commuters are expected to be done by the municipal corporation officials which have also added to the problem.
