The alleged indifferent attitude of Digboi Town Committee (DTC) authority was slammed by the local residents of ward V and VI in Digboi following its failure to provide essential services in the respective wards.
Showing their wrath towards the DTC authority headed by Mrs Sipra Mallick the BJP Chairman, the infuriated locals of both the affected wards created commotion within the premises and lambasted the authority for turning a deaf ear towards the daily hardships of the residents.
According to the aggrieved people, the deplorable condition of roads with dilapidated culverts which the passers–by face and frequent road accidents has became a daily phenomenon in Mission Para area.
The defective street lights in the area have not been repaired in spite of repeated requests and petitions to this effect. The situation affects the movement of the people at night as the place becomes equally risky and unsafe.
The contaminated water flowing through the drain along PNGB Road in Muliabri area of ward 6 under DTC finds its way into the nearby houses causing hazards in the area.
Enraged by the step motherly attitude of the concerned authority, the people of created a ruckus in front of the office of DTC and demanded the issues resolved immediately.
