School and college students, pedestrians had a harrowing experience while wading through flood waters. Flood water submerged a good number of road side shops on NH-37 under Sivasagar revenue circle. As a result the shop owners had to down their shutters.
The residents of Gaurisagar Namdangia Water Supply Scheme road have been demanding the local MLA as well as district administration to construct the road but in vain.
Illegal construction on historic Rupahijan has also added woes to the misery of the residents of this town.
The residents are of the view that if the historic sewage system Rupahijan is not improved at the earliest, people of Gaurisagar will have to face the problem of water logging for long time.
