Pathetic road condition in Namrup

A brief journey on the Namrup-Sonari road turns no less a nightmare these days suggesting a apathy of the authority for years.

The vital road that touches the Brahmaputra Valley Fertilizer Cooperation Limited, Assam Petrochemicals Limited and Namrup Thermal  Power Plant assumes huge importance for many people in the industrial zone in upper Assam.

Moreover, a huge portion of the road is a safe route for many tourists from the country and abroad who have been finding it quite difficult to enjoy the journey.

The pathetic plight has, of late, forced these guests to prefer the Namrup-Naharkatia Road to avoid the sufferings.

The local residents here have been in touch with the authorities. But the things have remained unchanged. They hope the local MLA and Namrup authority would look into it.

The All A'chik Youth Federation Assam State Zone (AAYF ASZ) is unhappy with the Assam government for not recruiting teachers in LP School for the Garo Medium LP School.

In a statement sent to media on Monday, the organization slammed the government for recruitment of non Garo teachers in the Garo medium schools.

“How they will teach Garo students at the Garo medium LP Schools if the teachers donot know the language?We have requested education minister Dr. Himanta Bishwa Sharma to evict the non Garo teachers from the Garo Medium LP Schools who even cannot speak or explain Garo language properly.

Notably, the government has recruited many non Garo teachers in the Garo dominated areas in Goalpara and Kamrup districts.

“The problem has been existing for the last 20 years. Now it is time to act properly. This way, Garo language can’t be preserved or promote,” said the organization.
