BONGAIGAON, Aug 2 - Residents of Amguri Part-1 in Abhayapuri area under North Salmara subdivision in Bongaigaon district have lauded Deputy Commissioner Adil Khan for his prompt action in clearing waterlogging from a vast area in the locality within 24 hours.
For easy passage of water of the area, a culvert was constructed 30 years ago by the Tapattari Development block, but two persons on the other side of the road had allegedly blocked the culvert for their personal interests. So, in every rainy season, the local residents of the locality had to suffer from waterlogging problem in which crop fields were damaged and people were forced to reach their residences negotiating knee-deep water.
Like in previous years, this time also the local aggrieved residents had appealed to the SDO (Civil) of North Salmara subdivision on July 27 to clear the blockage of the culvert. He immediately instructed the Tapattari Block officials to address the issue, but they were slow in taking action to complete the task.
When Deputy Commissioner Adil Khan came to know about the negligent attitude of the block officials in this matter, he took quick action and as a result within 24 hours, the problem was solved. Such prompt action by the Deputy Commissioner has made the residents of the locality elated and they have expressed their gratitude to him.
