NGO raises public issues with the Governor

Silchar, June 29: The Anchalik Unnayan Sanstha (AUS) of Lakhipur submitted a memorandum recently to the Governor of Assam, P B Acharya, highlighting the problems being faced by the people of sub-division due to lack of development in every sphere. It is to be noted that, Lakhipur, with its population of around 2.5 lakhs, was declared as a sub-division way back in 1992. But even after more than two decades, not a single permanent office of various state departments including PWD, treasury, agriculture, irrigation, court and settlement offices have been set up in the sub-division.
As a result of which, the people of the area have to travel all the way to Silchar for any official related works. In terms of health care, there is only a 6 bed public health centre in the sub-division which is inadequate to meet the medical care and needs of common people. The patients have to travel all the way to Silchar Medical College and Hospital for any major and critical health issue. The members of the Sanstha requested the Governor to look into the issues and to exert his good offices to provide relief to people of the sub-division. The memorandum was signed by Anil Das Talukdar, president of the Sanstha, Khokan Sutradhar, Alpona Sutradhar and Joy Das along with other members. (Source: SentinelAssam)
