Doomdooma, June 26: Doomdooma Senior Citizens Association (DISCS) and Doomdooma Press Club (DPC), after having a joint sitting on the problems of this tiny industrial town, submitted a joint memorandum to the civic body recently and urged it to look into the four main problems – eviction of illegal encroachment on the pavements, repair of the main roads which are in bad shape due to non-maintenance, effective steps for reducing traffic jams and shifting of Tuesday market to a suitable place.

Both the chairman of Doomdooma Town Committee (DDTC), Dulu Arandhara and the Executive Officer-cum-Circle Officer (CO), Doomdooma Revenue Circle, Pankaj Nagbongshi gave a patient hearing and assured the delegation comprising president Bina Deka, vice-president Dr Abdul Quadir and member Bhabesh Lahkar from DSCA and president Anuj Kalita, secretary Abhijit Khataniar and senior member Arjun Baruah from DPC to look into the matter. In this connection, chairman Dulu Arandhara divulged that a proposal had been sent to the government for allotment of some land of Beesakopie Tea Estate along NH-37 up to Rupaisiding bridge for expansion of the town, for want of which it had not been possible to take up many projects.
