SILCHAR, June 4 - A day after people of Silchar battled with the recurring problem of water logging due to heavy downpour, Deputy Speaker cum Silchar MLA Dilip Kumar Paul said that waterlogging in Silchar is the biggest challenge before the government and a well-planned result oriented approach with the will to solve the issue is the need of the hour.

�Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal is eager to develop Silchar into a beautiful city and a host of schemes have been taken up. Rs 200 crore has been sanctioned as well. But the main obstacle to achieve the dream is the growing menace of waterlogging. There should be the positive will to work to bring smiles in the faces of the people,� the Deputy Speaker said.

Choosing not to point out any individual or official, the Deputy Speaker hinted that he is unhappy with the district administration in implementing the developmental schemes and also in solving the problem of drainage clearance. �We must have the storm water drainage system materialised. Money will not be an issue. All we need is the will to work,� Paul maintained.

The Deputy Speaker said that to keep Silchar clean through schemes like the �Swaccha Sarvekshan� should not be confined to a �one man show.� Coordination between district administration, Silchar Municipal Board and the government should result in development as expected by the people who voted this government to power, he added. He also mentioned the need for an efficient waste management and drinking water scheme for the second biggest urban sprawl in the State.

It may be mentioned that the Cachar BJP in association with ONGC will host a meeting on �Sabka Saath Sab ka Vikas� on June 5 at the District Library auditorium.

Meanwhile, the sudden spate in the river Barak in the last 48 hours has triggered fresh panic among the people in Barak Valley. The water level of the river at Annapurna Ghat is measured at 19.40cm against 19.83cm danger level at this point. According to officials of the Department of Water Resources, water level is rising at the rate of 2cm per hour.
