Tangla town hit by artificial flashfloods

The dilapidated state of roads of Tangla town has been posing great inconvenience to people, mostly school and college goers, commuters and traders of the town along with people of nearby places. The water filled large potholes at Tangla-Bhergaon road, Tangla-Deur path and the bylane near Tangla HS school has been inundated with knee deep water which resides Sankardev Shishu Niketan, Arunodoi Academy school has been causing great trouble for students and guardians. The poor road condition have failed to draw attention of errant Tangla Town Committee authorities or the public representatives. Incessant rainfall since the past couple of days has totally paralyzed the normal functioning of life in the town. A single shower is just enough to make people suffer hell. The apathy of Tangla Town Committee(TTC) has been resented by the people of four wards of the town who despite paying regular taxes has been deprived of basic facilties like proper road,drinking water supply facility. The school and college going students were spotted battling with the logged water on Friday.The road connecting Tangla Forest Beat Office to MB Road has also been engulfed by knee-deep water. The TTC authorities after receiving complaints complete their duty by just laying thin layers of pebbles and sand. The bi-weekly market of Tangla has registered low sales as sticky mud and water logging in market sheds has made people avoid visiting them.The irated local residents who are liable to pay town committee taxes to TTC have expressed grave concern over the road conditions and have demanded intervention of the BTC authority and state government.
