SILCHAR, Feb 5: Lakhipur Mahakuma Minority Development Society (LMMDS), Banskandi, Cachar, has in a memorandum sent to the Chief Minister of Assam, Tarun Gogoi, today has articulated various issues of their areas and demanded remedial action from his end. One of the issues concerning academic pursuit is the long pending public demand for opening a college of science and commerce in the memory of late President of India APJ Abdul Kalam. Though the office of the deputy inspector of schools has been set up in Lakhipur, the post of deputy inspector till date has not been sanctioned.

It is in the interest of the education and the magement of schools, sanction for the said post is called for. Since, there is not a single senior madrasa at Banskandi, the need is for the establishment of a senior or title madrasa in the area. Minority Development Society has also demanded a pre examition training centre at Banskandi to eble the candidates of the various competitive examition to make preparations and acquire efficiency and aptitude for better performance. Besides, this will also sharpen their intelligence and competitiveness.

In view of the massive erosion caused by Barak river and its devastating effect on Chandrapur part III village for the last 25 years has led to complete destruction of crop lands, dwelling houses, village market of Chiri Bazar, a temple and two LP schools. Presently, there is no trace of the village and its habitations. People have demanded a mini dam or protective measures along the bank of river Barak which can save the land and houses of the people from being further eroded or washed away.

It has been mentioned that the people of the south side of Barak river are dependent on Chandrapur part III on the other bank for communication, marketing and education. During the rainy season and floods, they are faced with serious problems in many respects. The students have to suspend their attendance in schools. The state government employees in the same way have to remain off their duties in view of being stranded. The ferry services are not sufficient to cope with the demand of the vast population of the area. It is the fervent appeal of the residents to the Chief Minister for a RCC bridge over Barak at Chandpur part III which will facilitate communication and transportation.

Another demand is for the upgradation of Banskandi police investigation centre to a full-fledged police station. At present, the investigation centre covers two development blocks and around eight villages.

The Society expresses its dissatisfaction at the fact that though there have been many freedom fighters in the Lakhipur subdivision, nothing has been done to honour and perpetuate their memory and the sacrifices made by them for the liberation of the country. It is their long cherished wish that a road or a community hall may be built and dedicated in the me of the freedom fighter Khursed Ali Mazumder. The old British road from NH 37 to Chiri Bazar can also be remed in his me.
