Most of the senior citizens expressed concern over increasing indecency among the youngsters and the educational scenario within the jurisdiction of Ramfalbil Anchalik. They wanted that ABSU should take initiatives for social reformation, improvement of education, motivational camp on economic sustainability and choosing career for students, as well as inspirational programme for farmers and self-help groups.
Ripendra Brahma, a retired teacher of Ramfalbil HS School, said many government offices were shifted from Ramfalbil to other places and the establishment of proposed Block Development Office and Circle Office in Ramfalbil was still pending due to reasons best known to the government. He also said a nationalized bank branch was needed in Ramfalbil as Serfanguri was growing fast and becoming an important place for all.
Former MCLA of Dotma, Jatirindra Brahma in his speech said that Ramfalbil area was well known to all for being an epicentre of culture. He said that the founder of ABSU, Kanakeswar Narzary, former ABSU president and founder of PDF, Daoharu Garla Batha Basumatary and other dignitaries had made vast contribution to the Bodoland movement, social reformation, education and literature.
