Now the Mission is planning to establish a market in that area which was opposed by Pradyut Kumar Bora.

There should be specific parking areas for different vehicles and youths who have not attained the minimum age should not be allowed to use motorbikes, cars etc. He further suggested to evict the roadside business establishments for giving space to pedestrians. According to Bora, if traffic rules are implemented properly, then accidents will also be minimised. Bora also suggested proper controlling of heavy vehicles also in municipal area.
