By The Assam Tribune

GUWAHATI, May 21 � The Division Bench of the Gauhati High Court, comprising Chief Justice Ramesh Surajmal Garg and Justice Hrishikesh Roy, after hearing a PIL (No. 44/08) along with other connected PILs and writ petitions today directed Himanta Biswa Sarma, Minister, Guwahati Development Department to file an affidavit in the said PILs. The PILs have been filed for the artificial flood and water logging problems being faced by various areas of Guwahati city.

During the course of hearing, the court observed that the Minister of Guwahati Development Department at a press conference made a statement before the media that the water logging problems faced by Guwahati can not be solved and also made some irrelevant statements on the issue. The court, considering the minister�s observation made to the press, directed him to file an affidavit justifying his statements in the said PIL within May 26.

The court has also passed similar direction in the PIL No. 81/09 which was filed by Ketaki Bardalai and Dr Santwana Bordoloi for a direction to ensure strict implementation of the provisions of the Guwahati Municipal Corporation (collection, removal and disposal of solid wastes and efficient cleaning and scavenging of streets, drains and premises) bye-laws, 2000.
