Unfortunately,a group of people,illegally occupying the river bank at several places blocked the repair works.D.N. Hazarika, ADC,Udalguri recently visited the sites at the direction of Udalguri Deputy Commissioner.People urged the BTC authority immediately to take preventive measures so as to protect the Kalaigaon-Adarshagaon road.
