Plight of harkatia-Tingkhong road
Like most other roads of Assam, the road leading to Tingkhong from harkatia too is in a dilapidated condition. On last Sunday (Oct 22), we had to go to Tingkhong via harkatia but were appalled to experience the deplorable condition of the road. As we entered the road en route Tingkhong, the pucca road resembling a small pond accosted us. With great difficulty the car could proceed but the craters with full of muddy water hindered our journey. On getting an opportunity, we interacted with some of the local residents and questioned them as to why there are still silent on the poor road condition. They, mostly from tea-gardens, replied that on number of occasions they have initiated to draw the attention of those in powers. Alas! Their voices have fallen on deaf ears.
It seems, the local MLA, too is vulnerable to such situation, as he too is a victim of the countless false promises made by the Union and State ministers. It is now crystal clear that the BJP cannot be sanguine of its second term in the Assembly election, when the grievances of the affected people always fall on their deaf ears.
According to a media report a group of upper caste youths have beaten up Dalit youths allegedly for having moustache in a Gandhigar village in Ahmadabad. It is a shame! India is a secular country and is guided by the idea of ‘unity in diversity’. Then now why is this discrimition? Such incidents of hatred have been growing in the country and are now taking place at different places of our country. Incidents of lynching of cattle traders and beef eaters by cow vigilantes are increasing as well. Actually where our country is heading? The Government should deal such incidents with an iron hand.
