Azara, Aug 12: The Kuhabori area under Azara Rev Circle with a population of around 600 are afflicted by mundane problems with the authority looking the other way. The area is known to be hit by drinking water problem, lack of connectivity, flash flood, lack of medical facilities and many more.
In the matter of connectivity, the Kheliapara-Kuhabori road is that connects the area with the outside world. one A wooden bridge on the road that was constructed years ago is only repaired from time to time by the PWD and there is no move to replace the wooden bridge with a concrete one.
Presently, hit by termite, the bridge is beginning to decay and the people fear that it may collapse any moment.
Two by-lanes of the area, namely Kalita Suba and the road leading to the water supply project, are muddy roads.
Likewise, the PHE water supply scheme under Guwahati Division I has gone defunct and the people are forced to consume water from various other sources.
In the matter of education, the area has one primary school- the Kuhabori-Ambori primary school. The floor of the school is not cemented and the school does not have electricity. The area in front of the school is like a huge pit leading to accumulation of water.
Again, flash flood is common in the area. One shower is enough for such flood , while the main road goes under water. Further, the surplus water that is drained out of the LGB airport, only adds to the flood in the area. The small culvert built by the PWD over the Kalmoni rivulet which flows through the area only disturbs the free flow of water.
On the health front, Kuhabori is marked by the lack of any medical facility. Even for minor ailment on has to travel to Garal Primary Health Centre at a distance of 2 km and in the evening to Azara Community Health Centre 5 km away.
The people of the area are also facing the problem of the lack of a cremation ground. One such ground was constructed at a cost of Rs 16 lakh but has remained incomplete and of no use. Further there is no proper approach road to the said ground.
