GUWAHATI: Guwahati has been reduced to a pale shadow of its recent decorated self! The city was decorated to receive the Japanese Prime Minister along with his Indian counterpart. Everything bore the brunt of the anti-CAB (Citizenship Amendment Bill) agitation – right from road dividers to traffic point, electric posts, road barricades and cones, railings, bus stops and whatnot.
The Kamrup (M) district administration and the Guwahati Municipal Corporation (GMC) have cleaned the city, taking away the debris and the broken and charred remains of various structures.
Talking to The Sentinel, Kamrup (M) DC Biswajit Pegu said, “Employing GMC workers we’re cleaning the city. We’ll the clean the city soon. The entire city bore the brunt of the agitators. Big railings were toppled and torched. It will take some time to clean the city. We’ve made all arrangements for making vehicles to ply. We’re doing it when there’s no rush of people.”
GMC collector Lony Borgohain took the initiative to clean the city. Both male and female workers of the civic body have been working on a war footing to clean the city since the wee hours. Talking to The Sentinel, Borgohain said, “We’re going to clean the city for the wellbeing of the people. Our thrust now is on cleaning the city.”
