GUWAHATI, Jan 16 � Raising concern over the slower process of water supply pipe-laying work in their area, residents of Kundil Nagar Rajgarh bye lane 11 and 12 urged GMDA Chairman Dhiren Baruah to intervene, in a citizens� meeting held in the area on January 14.

Baruah, who visited the areas and heard public grievances, explained the entire water supply scheme to the people and the specific problems faced in pipe-laying work in different parts of Guwahati.

Locals of the area had complained about the delay in pipe laying work in a stretch of Kundil Nagar and also about the confusion over the authorities monitoring the drainage system of the area.

�Regarding the water supply scheme, the people have to wait till 2016 to get uninterrupted water supply, under the comprehensive water supply scheme. The pipe laying work is in the process. Due to the considerable presence of underground cables, the central zone of this project was facing some difficulties in the work,� said Baruah.

He assured the people of taking up the issue to ensure water supply pipe laying in the area. Regarding the drainage, it was explained to people that all the drains of lanes and bye lanes of the city are now under one authority, and the Guwahati Municipal Corporation (GMC) is responsible for cleaning and maintenance of such drainage, eliminating the scope of any confusion.

The residents of the area also complained about uneven earth filling along the Rajgarh Road after the completion of pipe laying work, which was causing inconvenience to the commuters as well creating dust pollution in the area.

�After the earth filling, it has become impossible to ply on this road due to dust. Moreover, the uneven surface has exposed the commuters to accidents,� said a local.

The meeting was attended by GMDA development officer, members of Save Guwahati Build Guwahati and other prominent residents of Kundil Nagar area.
