Silchar, July 6: The incessant rains and overflowing of water of Barak River at Singerband has eroded 6 to 7 houses and destroyed PWD Road of that area. Roads users have been compelled to use an indirect route Kaptanpur-Rupaibali for reaching Lakhipur. All communication has been cut off. Residents of that area have been suffering from this problem for ages. On Sunday last, MP Sushmita Dev and MLA Rajdeep Goala along with district Congress president Pradip Kumar Dey and Lakhipur Block Congress president Hareshwar Dubey visited the affected area. They said that Rs.11 crores was sanctioned from the DoNER Minister during the Congress regime. Since BJP came into power, the work has been left undone. They assured that immediate action would be taken in order to solve the serious problem.
