Focus on pathetic plight of NH 38

MARGHERITA: More than 200 AASU leaders and activists blocked the National Highway No 38 in Margherita on Thursday for one hour demanding immediate steps to repair the vital road which has been lying in a shamble for years.

Talking to reporters, Margherita AASU unit president Dipankar Buragohain and General Secretary Bulbul Saikia said the vital road which has been playing a pivotal role in the surface communication network has been remaining in a dilapidated condition only because of the lackadaisical attitude of the government.

The protestors slammed chief minister Sarbananda Sonowal, who before the assembly polls promised to rev up the road sector, has gone back to his own promise. They criticised local legislator Bhaskar Sarma alleging that he has hardly any time to look into these problems.
