GUWAHATI, May 4: The State government has decided change the mes of ten major roads in Guwahati. The existing mes of these roads in the city have been proposed to be remed in honour of renowned persolities of the State even as city residents express concern whether the condition of these roads will be improved or not.

Addressing a press conference here on Thursday, State Fince Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma said that the 10 km stretch of the Guwahati-Shillong (GS) Road within the city will be remed Mahapurush Srimanta Sankardeva Path, while the Assam-Trunk (AT) Road from Paltan Bazar to Bharalumukh will now be known as Mahapurush Srimanta Damodar Dev Path.

Sarma said that the Six Mile to rengi VIP Road will be remed Mahapurush Madabdev Path, Ganesh Mandir to NH Via Hatigaon will be called Mahapurush Haridev Path and Ganesh Mandir via Kahilipara to Lalganesh will be mes as Pandit Deendyal Upadhyaya Path. “The Kharghuli to Noonmati road will be med Dr Bhupen Hazarika Path, Henrabari Road to Sachal VIP point will be called Khagen Mahanta Path, Sijubari Path will be med Chaolung Sukaphaa Path, Beltola Khapara Road will be Pir Ajan Fakir Path, while the Guwahati Club Traffic Rotary med Sahityarathi Lakhmith Bezbaroa Chowk,” he said. Reacting to the decision of the government, a section of city residents said that mere reming the road is not enough, government should give priority to improve the condition of the city roads. “Several roads in Guwahati city are in deplorable condition. Government should concentrate on its improvement,” said a city resident.

There is also a question whether people will accept the new mes or will it remain confined in papers.

“It will be interesting to see, whether city residents accept the new mes or it remains confined in papers only given the fact that previous Congress government had remed GS road as Indira Gandhi road but people did not accept it,” said another resident.
