Bridge of 29 lakhs washed away in month, Officer tries to bribe Citizen Journalist

My name is Prakash Gupta from Surguja in Chhattisgarh. Today I want to tell you the story of a bridge built with the cost of Rs 29 lakhs in Balrampur district. The construction was so bad that the bridge washed away in less than a month in Sept. When I tried to investigate it the concerned official tried to bribe with a bundle of notes which I have recorded in this message. Even after a month the administration has not taken any action against concerned officials. You are requested to call Collector Mr Prasanna at 09826442277 or write to him at For more Prakash can be reached at 07697852665
