Fishing on the highway!

MARGHERITA: In a bid to highlight the pathetic plights of the National Highway No 38 in Margherita many local residents living on the roadside resorted to mock fishing and cultivation Saturday.   

Led by Chatra Mukti Sangram Samity’s Tinsukia district committee, the local residents joined the mock session alleging that Pradyut Bordoloi from Congress has been doing nothing on this front. Same allegations they raised against the incumbent legislator Bhaskar Sarma who has done precious little so far.

CMSS leader Lakhya Jyoti Gogoi said,” we have already moved the MLA many times. But of no avail. We have no option but to resort to this course of action to draw the attention of the authority.”

 Gogoi said, “the people of Margherita have voted for change. The leaders were changed only. But the plights of the people remained unchanged.”

Another protester said, “the vital road from Powai to Jagun falls under No 124 Margherita constituency. Even after two years of assuming power Sharma has done nothing. We the people have been bearing the brunt.”

Later they sent a memorandum to the Chief Minister through the Margherita SDO(Civil).
