Silchar, April 27: In the midst of ongoing controversy over NRC update and all the confusions among common people, seva kendras across the district of Cachar have started functioning to furnish relevant legacy data to the citizens. But, several or most of the seva kendras lack basic infrastructure. This has only brought to the fore the indifferent and callous attitude of the authorities concerned.
A memorandum signed by the All Assam Minorities Students’ Union (AAMSU) has been submitted to the Deputy Commissioner of Cachar today highlighting the hardships faced by the people of Topkha GP regarding NRC update. Topkha GP has been allotted Haticherra NRC help centre for the purpose of NRC form submission and which is at a distance of 40 km away from the GP. The river Barak, which falls between the two places, also is a major obstacle for the people on the way of communication between the two areas.
In view of the problems and hardships faced by the people due to the long distance, the AAMSU has requested the Deputy Commissioner of Cachar that Tupkha should be provided with its own NRC help centre, excluding it from Haticherra help centre. The memorandum was signed by sir Husain Mazumdar, convener, Ruksa Sulta Khan, president, Topkha GP, and Sahjahan Mazumdar, among others.
