As such, Hazarika has given an ultimatum to the contractor to complete the work within the next 15 days or have his license cancelled.

Hazarika could be seen checking the progress of the work and even reprimanding the contractor and local officials for the slow progress of the work.

The contractor said that he had got very little time to meet the deadline. However, he assured Minister Hazarika that the work would now pick a pace and be completed in time.
