GAURISAGAR, June 17: Phulpanichiga Majumelia –Jaradhara road under 103 no. Amguri LAC connected with NH-37 is the lifeline for people of greater Phulpanichiga Majumelia, Bamun and Jaradhara villages. Despites repeated reminders to the authorities concerned and elected public representatives for repair of the road, no steps were taken. Owing to the dilapidated condition of the road, people are facing inconvenience.

Students, aged persons and patients are the worst suffers, particularly during the rainy season. Considering this situation, Brihattar Asomiya Yuva Manch, Jhanji Anchalik Samiti decided to protest in a unique manner. Activists of the organization planted paddy seedlings in the worst portions of the road in association with the local people.

“It is unfortute that even after 68 years of the country’s independence, people have to resort to protest by planting paddy seedlings in order to draw attention of the authority concerned and local MLA,” said Monuj Gogoi, president of Brihattar Asomiya Yuva Manch, Jhanji Anchalik Samiti.

On January 27, 2010 the then State PWD Minister Ajanta Neog had laid the foundation stone of this road. Regarding the poor condition of the road, Sivasagar PWD Rural Roads division sources told this correspondent that the remaining 1,700 meters portion of the road was under fil sanction at a cost of more than Rs 1 crore.

Due to the pitiable road condition three years ago the Morabazar Gaon Panchayat Office had been shifted to Jamuguri.
