Green Assam is born in Margherita

Beware tree fellers. Why don’t you allow the surroundings to go further green in Margherita? The time has come----you must stop felling trees, check soil erosion. These will only help you get a clean Dehing river---you lifeline.

The river Dehing which flows across Margherita to reach the mighty Brahmaputra is getting dirty day by day. The old river has become a garbage ground for a section of traders in the Margherita township. A group of nature lovers has set up Green Assam in Margherita to help the environment remain clean in the entire area.       

The non governmental organization was born on Sunday at the Ram Krishna Vidyapith School premises presided over by renowned social worker Dharmeswer Chetia. Addressing the meeting, President of Margherita Journalist Association Ram Prasad stressed the need to keep the environment clean and fresh in the time of global warming.  

The meeting set up a 16 member committee keeping Rajib Rudra Tariang, Barun Bora, Deepali Pujari Sinha, Laxmi Pradhan Thapa Nibha Bora as advisers.

The NGO president is Dharmeswar Chetia while Ram Prasad Ambedkar is the vice president. Chowkham Gohain is Secretary while the assistant secretary is Dolly Hussain. Organising secretary is Mithun Baruah while Sukhanto Debnath is treasurer. The executive members include Ibrar Hussain, Hrishikesh Borgohain, A Debnath Dutta, Sonali Dey, A Borgohain.
