GUWAHATI, Oct 27 - The residents of Kaliram Choudhury Road Byelane No.2 under the Guwahati Municipal Corporation (GMC) Ward No.8 have moved the Bharalumukh Police Station with a plea to bring under control a builder who has turned allegedly their bylane into a virtual drain.
The residents, who include even a senior advocate of the Gauhati High Court and a director of a government department among others, alleged in their First Information Report (FIR) before the police that the builder who is constructing a multi-storey building in their area on a plot of land belonging to a former chief justice of the Gauhati High Court, has been releasing mud and water from the construction site onto the bylane without bothering to honour the existing legal provisions.
The onrush of the huge quantity of water and mud released from the construction site has damaged the drain running along the bylane and used by the residents of the small locality to dispose of the waste water generated in their individual households. The builder is paying no heed to the pleas made by the residents of the locality and carrying out the nefarious activity without caring to know the carrying capacity of the small drain and in contravention of GMC and Guwahati Metropolitan Development Authority norms.
The situation has reached such a pass that now the entire bylane is on the verge of being totally damaged and residents of this locality are facing serious problems, they said, pleading for urgent intervention of the police station to control the situation.
