Silchar, June 11: Escalating rise in prices of essential commodities has made life miserable for the people. In addition to this, the hike in public bus fare from Silchar to Lakhipur from the existing Rs.30 to Rs.40 is posing as a serious problem for the people of the entire Lakhipur sub division. In this regard, Lakhipur BJP has submitted a memorandum to the sub divisional officer (Civil) of Lakhipur Civil Sub Division Office recently.
They have mentioned that the bus association has not taken any advice or consulted with the Deputy Commissioner of Cachar or people or authorities concerned before hiking the fare. Lakhipur BJP urged for arrangement of a meeting with immediate effect so that the issue can be resolved at the earliest. A copy of the memorandum, signed by Gunjan Kar, Abhijit Cnahnda, Pratap Chandra Das, Biswajit Singh, Ashim Raj, Nobendu Roy and Bijoy, has been given to the Deputy Commissioner of Cachar.
