Scarcity of safe drinking water in Tangla

Hagrama Mahillary's utopian dream of Model BTC is still a distant dream in Tangla. The residents of the four wards of Tangla town have been deprived of safe drinking water for the past four years. The town which has two water plants at Chitranagar and Jalukbari under the TTC has been lying inactive since 30 November 2012. The residents have been facing harrowing time. Hand pumps and river water are the only sources left for the people.

There is a pending electricity bill of Rs.40 lakhs payable to ASEB by Tangla Town Committee. The town committee is functioning under BTC administration for the past 12 years.
