Citizens’ Forum meet held

SILCHAR, Aug 30: In a bid to find solution for various problems in the district, the members of the Citizens’ Forum met in Silchar recently. The meeting was held to discuss problems such as dilapidated roads, drainage system, political malfunctioning etc. At the meeting, the members of the forum vociferously objected to the condition of roads between Capital travels and Sonai road in the town. Due to a poor drainage system, solid wastes are getting piled up on the roads causing enough trouble to the commuters. They raised questions on the silence maintained by the MPs and MLAs of the Barak Valley when Khasia students had imposed a curfew along the national highway, thereby obstructing the transportation system. Drawing up on all these issues, the forum highlighted the need to involve all conscious citizens of the town along with the leading NGOs in Cachar district to chalk out a plan to ensure progress and development in Silchar. Advocate Bithika Acharjee, a member of the forum, stressed on the need for right planning before launching any work. She said, ‘‘The political ears have become immune to the problems of the public’’. She emphasized the need for a public movement by bringing together various factions of the society. Other eminent members of the forum who participated in the meeting included Anup Chowdhury, Biplob Goswami, Baharul Islam, Sanat Koiri and Kamal Kumar Sarda. (Source - Sentinel Assam)
