The Capital Development Authority (CDA) has claimed that 90 per cent construction work on the Bari Imam Complex project has been completed.
During a visit to the complex on Wednesday, CDA Chairman Nadeem Hassan Asif directed the engineering wing of the civic agency to complete the shrine’s construction work so that it could be opened for devotees at the earliest. He said that no further delay in construction would be tolerated, according to a press release.
The shrine’s structure, arcade area, marble flooring and concrete work on minarets have been completed, according to the statement.
Asif’s visit came days after Federal Minister for Finance Ishaq Dar, at a meeting of the newly reconstituted committee on the Bari Imam Complex, had expressed concern over delays in completing the project. Dar directed members that the first phase of work should be completed at the earliest and Phase-II started without delay.
