HAFLONG, June 26 - Residents of NC Hills Autonomous Council colony here have vehemently opposed the proposal to set up a car washing centre in their residential area as it would create public nuisance and also harm the serene ambience of the locality.
In this regard Golon Daulagupu, former Executive Member of NC Hills Autonomous Council along with several residents recently lodged a complaint before the Deputy Commissioner in protest against the proposal for establishment of a car washing centre in the residential area of NCHAC Colony.
