NORTH GUWAHATI, Sept 9 � Distinguished economist and former principal of Cotton College, Dilip Boruah emphasised how North Guwahati could be built as a fully planned outgrowth of Guwahati city through construction of the much talked-about bridge between the two banks of the historic city.

Boruah was addressing a seminar on construction of a bridge between North Guwahati and Guwahati to accelerate the process of development as demanded by the people since the past few decades.

The pace of development was stalled, especially after the construction of the Saraighat Bridge and at present due to lack of water and road communication, the sufferings of the people of North Guwahati areas has increased, Boruah observed, and hoped that if properly planned beforehand, the construction of the much-needed bridge would usher in much-needed development in various spheres.

The seminar was presided over by Dr Kokil Boruah, while Diganta Bora explained the purpose of the seminar. Another resource person, Dr Mrinal Kanti Dutta of the Development of Social Science (Economics) of the IIT in North Guwahati narrated how hitherto neglected North Guwahati in the tourism sector, despite its enviable potentialities, could be imaginatively developed into an attractive place for the tourists, thereby creating opportunities for employment.

A former Director of Archaeology, Dr Hemendra Nath Dutta explained how various economic and social changes could be ushered in by the construction of the much-needed bridge, as pointed out earlier too.

Again, on the demands for construction of a bridge between the city and North Guwahati in order to mitigate the sufferings of the commuters of ferry and engine boat services, a sit-in strike was launched near the DC�s office of Kamrup (R) under the auspices of the North Guwahati Students� Association and North Guwahati United Women Sangha on September 6.

A memorandum containing the demands of the agitating students and women was submitted to the DC Kamrup and the Chief Minister through the subdivisional head, Kamrup, Atul Sarmah. The president of NGSU, Pradip Das, Pinki Barman, Sadhana Bora and Usha Devi led the women�s groups.
