He also said that all civil works, utilization certificates with photographs were submitted by the VECs with proper signature and seal and asked the KLRSU to first get some knowledge about the norms and systems of the project rather than “threatening” the ERBC officials. The ERBC also cautioned the KLRSU of legal actions if no clarification was issued through media and in person and further asked the KLRSU to come out with the minutes of the executive meeting which was held on May 5.
