GUWAHATI: The residents of Ganesh Mandir Path, in the township area of the Indian Oil Corporation (IOCL) Guwahati Refinery submitted a memorandum to the Kamrup (Metro) District Administration regarding the closure of certain roads and byelanes frequently by the Guwahati refinery. The residents of the area are facing issues due to the road blockade and appealed to the District Administration to prohibit the road blockade.
The locals alleged that, in order to maintain a peaceful environment, the refinery from time to time closes down the New Guwahati Ganesh Mandir byelane number 4 and 9. These bylanes connect the neighbouring lanes of Jyoti Nagar, Gopal Nagar and Nepali Chowk.
The locals said that the refinery had opened the lanes for a few days after they complained about the matter to the District Administration.
