KMSS protest against �corruption� IN WRD

By Correspondent

NORTH LAKHIMPUR, June 11 � The Krishak Mukti Sangram Samiti (KMSS) staged a demonstration in front of the office of the Executive Engineer, Water Resources Department, at Dhakuakhana against the alleged irregularities and corruption in the construction of dykes at Sisi-Tekeliphoota.

The KMSS activists shouted slogans against Union Minister and local MP Sarbananda Sonowal, local MLA Naba Kumar Doley and State Water Resources Minister Basanta Das for their alleged silence on the �irregularities� in the construction of a Rs 156-crore project under the FMP scheme of the Central Water Resources Commission.

The flood and erosion-affected villagers of Matmora and Tekeliphoota region of Dhakuakhana, led by the KMSS, gheraoed the Water Resources Department office and detained the office staff there for several hours.

It may be recalled that the Mangalore-based Yojaka India Pvt Ltd was awarded the contract to execute the dyke protection work by using geo-bags on December 22, 2014. However, nothing much has progressed so far and as monsoon has lashed the region, local villagers are getting panicky in the fear of any eventuality resulting from a likely breach on the dyke by the Brahmaputra.
