SILCHAR, Oct 8 � Despite many appeals and arguments placed to mend the NH-6 connecting Badarpur with Jowai before the mega block, there was no action taken by the state government. And even after a week since the train services have been withdrawn on the Silchar-Lumding route with the mega block coming into effect, the government is unmoved on its approach to repair the road.
Grahak Suraksha Samiti, the local consumer forum has said that the condition of the NH-6 is worsening day by day. Biplab Kumar Goswami, general secretary of the forum slammed Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi and his team of ministers from Barak Valley for utter inaction despite flowering promises.
In a press release, Goswami said, �the two ministers from Barak Valley must resign if they fail to initiate action to put the road back together within one month. Ninety-nine per cent of the people from Barak Valley depend on this NH-6 for communication with the rest of the State and the country. But the sorry state of the road is making life difficult for the people.�
