PATACHARKUCHI, July 8 - �Bajali Haat�� a sale centre for selling of the products of Self-Help Groups at Pathsala town of Barpeta district is lying almost in an abandoned state since 2005/06, when it was constructed, for reasons best known to the authorities concerned.
The complex has failed to serve their purpose, though a huge amount was spent for its construction. The signboard hanging near it says that the building was constructed under �Swarna Jayanti Swarojgar Yojana� by the District Rural Development Agency, Barpeta at an estimated cost of Rs 11.7 lakh in 2005/06. Now there are three signboards in the main building, one as �Bajali Haat� and another as Bajali subdivisional library and third an Anganwadi centre. The sale centre comprising a number of stalls was constructed with the noble aim for providing a platform for the self help groups of the locality for display and selling their products. But it is very unfortunate that the complex remains in an abandoned state.
People have asked that the complex be properly utilised.
