MARGHERITA: Hundreds of people hit the streets in Margherita on Friday

outlining a slew of demands which they want to be fulfilled at an

earlier date.

Organized by AJYCP’s Margherita unit, the protesters thronged Segunbari

NH 38 Road shouting slogans in support of their demands.

More than 200 people took out the protest rally from North Margherita

Rangamancha and blocked the road for more than 2 hours shouting slogans

against Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal, MLA Bhaskar Sharma alleging

that the duo have failed to address their grievances.

AJYCP’s Tinsukia leader Kanchan Bora said, “many areas including

Machangpani and Longgaon are on the brink of collapse because of soil

erosion of the Buri dehing river. But Bhaskar Sharma is least bothered.

The vital portion of the NH 38 in Margherita is in dilapidated

condition. Sarma remains silent. Is there a government?”

The protesters further demands step to rein in the illicit liquor

traders of Margherita, ensuring availability of drinking water in the

entire area.

Later, the sent a memorandum to the Chief Minister through the

Margherita SDO (Civil).
