The minister on the day also visited the under-construction farmers’ hostel, Government poultry farm and the drug store, during which he was discontented to find out that the bio-security of poultry farm was being compromised by around 15 labourers as they were without any authorization living at the site.
It was brought to the notice of the minister that the contractor concerned of the Government poultry farm was using the building to keep his labourers and he had also obtained electricity illegally for the labourers for their use.
