Irate public demand action against PWD officials and contractors

26 Mar 2009 - 4:00pm | Jayanta Kumar Das
People of Naharbari village under Kalaigaon revenue circle have raised allegations against PWD officials and contractors for misappropriation of huge amount of money amounting several lakhs of rupees in the name of repairing of PWD road and construction of a culvert.In a written allegation addressed to Lmsraw Daimari, EM BTAD, hundreds of prominent citizens of Naharbari areas headed by retired principal Hareswar Baishya,demanded immediate action against the concerned contractor and PWD officials, including the JE,for substandard works. According to the allegation, an amount of Rs.5 lakhs were sanctioned for the repair of the Kulsipar-Tiapukhuri PWD road in the session 2006-2007. But the concerned PWD officials and the contractor had misappropriated most of the money leaving the work undone.They further alleged that another amount of Rs.12.75 lakhs were sanctioned in the same session for the construction of a culvert on the said PWD road ( near the house of Bhabendra Nath ). But the same PWD officer and the contractor again misappropriated most of the amount. The standard of the construction work was so poor that cracks developed even before the culvert was opened for public use.It is well mentioning that the said PWD road had been the only link to several villages connecting Kalaigaon, Udalguri and Mangaldai and disruption of vehicular traffic would cause serious consequences to people as well as the government. People of Naharbari also alleged that any kind of construction works in the villages in BTAD had always been very poor. They said,taking advantage of the absence of governmental inquiry or verification, most of the works had either been left undone or half done,there by misappropriation of huge amount of public money.

Peace moves in progress; Pradeep, Mithinga granted bail

24 Feb 2010 - 12:06am | editor

In yet another significant development that can expedite the soon-to-be-kickstarted peace process with the government, a TADA court in Guwahati granted bail to ULFA vice chairman Pradeep and central publicity secretary Mithinga Daimary. The jailed ULFA top gun duo are expected to be released from the Guwahati Central jail on Tuesday itself.


Gogoi, who has been languishing in the jail since 1998, had six cases under TADA while he was granted bail in three cases on February 19. The TADA court on Tuesday delivered its final judgment on the remaining three other cases. The government last week informed the court that they have nothing to object if the duo are released on bail.


On the other hand, the court also granted bail to Publicity secretary Mithinga Daimary on Tuesday. It was to be delivered two weeks back but was reserved after public prosecutor Pradeep Gogoi collapsed on the court as the hearing was in progress. Daimary was lodged in Guwahati central since he was captured in Bhutan during the Operation All Clear in 2005. However, the bail was said to be conditional. In a recent development, the authorities have shifted ULFA ideologue Bhimkanta Burahgohain alias Mama to the Guwahati Central Jail from Tezpur to help the leader sit together. On the other hand, Assam Chief Minister recently told reporters that the government had nothing to object in their release if they really wanted to carry forward the process.

BSS to stage dhrana in Delhi on April 12

9 Apr 2012 - 1:55am | editor


The Bodo Sahitya Sabha will stage a 2-hour dharna Jantar Mantar in New Delhi on April 12 alleging non fulfillment of their demands related to Bodo-medium schools.


The Bodo literary body will also burn copies of "The Assam Venture Educational Institutions (Provincialization of Services) Act, 2011" and "Assam Non-government Educational Institution (Management & Regulation) Act 2006" saying that the two Acts have loopholes which are going against Bodo-medium institutions.


BSS has given an ultimatum to the state government to make public the modalities for setting up a separate directorate for Bodo-medium schools, along with Cabinet approval and amendment to 'Assam Venture Educational Institutions (Provincialization of Services) Act, 2011' and 'Assam Non-government Educational Institution (Management & Regulation) Act, 2006'. But there is no response till date.
