During the meeting, the delegation called for streamlining the BTC administration and sought action plan for all-round development in the region.

A memorandum was also submitted to the BTC administrator seeking better administration, speedy development and equal justice up to the grassroots level during the Governor’s rule.

“The people have been appealing to establish better administration, speedy development and equal justice for all since the signing of the historic BTR Accord,” said Boro.

The students’ union urged the BTC administrator to visit each sub-division and district under the Council and take stock of the situation ‘on the ground’ for taking prompt steps to ensure “speedy development” in the region.

The visit by the BTC administrator is required for speedy implementation of all the government schemes in the region, said the ABSU president.
