The contractor used thin roof top, which was later replaced with 0.30 mm steel sheets after a complaint was made. Instead of re-construction the damage part the contractor re-cast the defected area. And one of the most important is the contractor put steel railing with broad gap which might be fatal for small children, he added.

The roof top of the building has already leaked; the quality of tiles, walls is not properly maintained. He said if the quality is not maintained the health centre will become killing centre instead of life saving centre.
