GUWAHATI, Dec 12 - Three months after a tree got uprooted due to rains accompanied by strong winds, the Guwahati Municipal Corporation is yet to clear the broken branches and trunks of the tree on the eastern fringes of Dighalipukhuri. In the month of September, heavy downpour wreaked havoc, bringing down several trees and electric poles in the city.
There is no place for pedestrians as the branches and trees have occupied the entire footpath. The uprooted tree also damaged a street light and it is also occupying the Dighalipukhuri Park. �It has been more than three months but I do not know when they will remove the debris. The street light has also not been repaired due to which the entire area remains in the dark. It has become difficult for the pedestrians to move around in the area,� a shopkeeper in Dighalipukhuri said.
A pedestrian said that the concerned authority should have cleared the debris without any delay. It has also affected the scenic beauty of the area as well.
