Demolition Work Of Odisha MLA Quarters To Begin Tomorrow

Bhubaneswar: The demolition process of MLA quarters in front of the State Assembly will begin from tomorrow. As per reports, there are 42 quarters including F-type and R-type which will be demolished along with police station, post office, railway office and Ayurvedic hospital.

The structures will be demolished to pave way for construction of a 10-storey apartment with garden, gym, rest house, parking lot and other modern-day amenities.

Reprimanding some former MLAs for not surrendering their government quarters, Odisha Assembly Speaker Surya Narayan Patro had directed them to vacate quarters in October. While so far 24 MLAs have vacated their quarters, others have been served notices to vacate the quarters as soon as possible.

“The multi storey building will be built for 150 MLAs with underground parking facility. The MLAs who are yet to vacate the quarters have been served notice,” said Patro.

Patro had earlier informed that the lobby of the Odisha Assembly will also get a complete makeover. The entire State Assembly will be WiFi-enabled with modern-day lighting facilities. Tenders have already been invited for the project, he had said.
