SILCHAR, April 21: The people of Sribar, Rajargram and its adjoining areas in a memorandum submitted to the Governor of Assam through the sub-divisiol officer of Lakhipur recently have drawn his attention towards their burning problems, affecting their day to day life, for their redressal. Their repeated memoranda and petitions to the district and civil authorities have failed to yield any reply and action. Finding no other options, the leaders and members of BJP in a representation to the Governor have sought his immediate intervention in this matter.

The communication problem of the far and remote rural areas despite enormous funding by the Centre and the state remains forever as there is no proper or competent authority to monitor the implementation of related schemes and projects. One such instance is of Sahid ndachand Road connecting Lakhipur bazaar with Silchar road that passes through Rajargram and Sribar. It has been the long standing demand of the people of the area.

It has been pointed out that the road in question is the only shortest route to link Lakhipur town with Sribar and Rajargram. Thousands of people residing along the road use it for their multiple purposes and also for their commercial needs to Lakhipur market. Despite repeated memoranda and representations by the people concerned to the SDO (civil), Deputy Commissioner of Cachar and ministers concerned of the state, no effective action has been taken till date. People continue to grope in darkness and are at a loss as to whom to approach and get their problems looked into for resolution.

People of the areas are also baffled and find no explation for keeping a mini bridge on Chiri river at Rajargram incomplete for a long time after initiating construction works. Various questions have been raised on the matter. It is important that unless the bridge over Chiri at Rajargram is completed, Sahid ndachand Road cannot be extended or taken up for construction.

Virtually, uble to explore any other avenue, they have been compelled to send this memorandum to the Governor of Assam and expect he would take it up seriously for positive action. The sigtories to the memorandum include Ree Singh, Shyallal Singh, Mril Kanti Das, Banitombi Sharma, Sampa Das, Gunjan Kar, Abhiram Sharma and Kalachand Banik.
