Titabor, June 4: Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi was today greeted with protests by All Assam Students Union and Asom Se at his home constituency Titabor.

The activists wore face masks of the Chief Minister, protesting alleged neglect of the sub-division.

"On 22 January, 2003, Titabor was declared a sub-division. Twelve years after that announcement, Titabor is still to become a full-fledged sub-division. The civil hospital in the town exists only in its signboard," Asom Se convenor Nilotfar Rehman said.

He said the Inspector of Schools office in Titabor was opened in 2008, but no officer has been posted at the office till date.

"Nobody knows where the MLA area development funds are going. We have submitted several complaints to the CM regarding corruption in various sectors in the constituency, but he has failed to initiate any inquiry into the cases," Rehman said.

Meanwhile, a delegation of ATTSA led by its joint secretary Dhiraj Gowala met the Chief Minister at the guest house of the 3rd APBn headquarters at Titabor. The ATTSA members took up various issues concerning the ATCL gardens like wage hike, ration supply etc. They complained that some ATCL gardens were not getting subsidized ration for over ten years. The workers at the ATCL gardens are still getting Rs 94 as wage, though their compatriots in other gardens are being paid Rs 115.

The Chief Minister assured to look into the grievances.

Gogoi also announced that workers of the ATCL gardens will be provided free treatment and medicines at the government medical college and hospitals.
