Stir threat by Tarun Nagar residents

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, Feb 3 � Getting no favourable response from the State Government on their various civic problems, the people of Tarun Nagar have decided to lodge their protest through dharna, roadblocks and protest demonstrations in the days to come.

February 15 has been decided as the deadline for the Government and its departments concerned to take action regarding construction and repair work of the lanes and bye-lanes, permanent measures to solve the flash-flood problem, replacement and repair of the defunct street lights among others.

�The area, located in the heart of the city has been facing almost all the major civic problems, despite the fact that the citizens pay their taxes regularly.

Flash-floods and the lack of proper drainage is the major problem, we have been facing since the past ten years. Now, the indifferent attitude of the authorities have irked the residents of the area,� Biswanath Das, general secretary of the Tarun Nagar Unnayan Samity said.

The local people have decided to go for a Rajiv Bhawan gherao, Dispur Chalo and road-blockade, if steps are not taken within the stipulated time.

�We recently submitted memorenda to the Chief Minister, Minister of Guwahati Development Department (GDD), Commissioner GDD, Minister PWD, local MLA Captain Robin Bordoloi, CEO, GMDA, Commissioner, GMC, Chief Engineer, GMC, Chief Engineer and Executive Engineer, PWD, Chief Engineer State Water Resource Department among others, but nothing significant has been done to improve the condition of our area,� he said.

The local Unnayan Samity, however, received a letter from the Deputy Commissioner, Kamrup (Metro) on Thursday, which has asked the Executive Engineer of the State Water Resource Department (Mechanical) to take urgent steps for installation of pumps to drain out flood water.

Another letter from the DC has asked the Superintendent Engineer, PWD regarding the construction of bye-lane 6.

�Though we have received these correspondences, we want some concrete action in this regard,� Das said.

�Garbage collection is also a major problem in our area as the staff of the Government appointed agency Ramky Group do not come to our locality. When we contacted the private agency a few days back, they assured us of door-to-door MSW collection that however, didn�t happen. Meanwhile, the people of the locality also stopped the paid garbage collection service from a local NGO.

Now we are facing immense problem since the past three days,� he added.
