GUWAHATI, Aug 30 � Save Guwahati Build Guwahati (SGBG) has called upon the Chief Secretary of the State to take the necessary steps to resolve woes of the taxpayers.
The SGBG said that the capital city was plagued by many civic problems like artificial flooding, encroachment on roads, overflowing drains, stinking garbage, etc., but the authorities concerned were least bothered about these issues.
The SGBG has urged the Chief Secretary to free the Deshbhakta Tarun Ram Phookan Road, SRCB Road, Murulidhar Sarma Road and Mahatma Gandhi Road pointing out that illegal loading and unloading on these roads have created inconvenience to the public.
The SGBG, on the other hand, has slammed the Guwahati Municipal Corporation (GMC) for failing to keep the city clean. �The GMC has failed to clean the drains in the city. If the civic body had cleaned the drains at least once a week, the problem of artificial flooding would not have been that severe,� said SGBG adding that many of the areas in the capital city have been facing drinking water crisis.
