Memorandum submitted to Cachar Deputy Commissioner


SILCHAR, Feb 12: From the rural belts of Cachar district, public complaint about the deteriorating condition of network of roads has been mounting with no response from the PWD (R). Memoranda after memoranda by various organizations of the areas concerned to the authorities are simply accepted but never acted upon. In the present instance, the condition of Kathal road linking Hailakandi road and also a passage to the town of Silchar, SMCH, NIT and Assam University has become so worst with holes and craters all along that the users, both from the rural areas as well as the residents, have to face severe difficulties in their movement.

A memorandum in this respect was submitted by some residents on behalf of the suffering people to the Deputy Commissioner of Cachar on Thursday, urging upon him to intervene for its repair and improvement. A large number of people who include the students of various schools and colleges are greatly inconvenienced to reach their respective destitions. Moreover, it is also a link to the 6th Assam Police Bn headquarters. Even on foot, people find it difficult to walk. The dirt and dust of the passing vehicles compound the situation, telling on human body.

In view of the situation, the Deputy Commissioner has been requested to take immediate steps to repair the damaged road. With no action coming within a week, people will have no other altertive to block the road on February 16 which will adversely affect the movement of people along Silchar-Hailakandi road. The memorandum was signed by more than 50 residents and a copy of which was also sent to the executive engineer, PWD (R) Silchar division.
