|Bid to overhaul water supply facilities in Silchar|
SILCHAR, Aug 28 - In a bid to re-lay the water pipelines across Silchar town, the Government is putting emphasis on implementation of the Rs 180-crore project under AMRUT scheme which shall ensure better management of drinking water.
Silchar MP Dr Rajdeep Roy had recently led a contingent from Silchar for a meeting with the Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal on AMRUT scheme, CIDF, expediting incomplete tasks on water plant towers and even on the fate of the much-needed flyover.
Talking to The Assam Tribune on Wednesday, Dr Roy said, “the meeting proved to be successful as Chief Minister sought reports on the CIDF implementation and also took stock of the project under AMRUT scheme that shall ensure channelised water supply to the people of Silchar. Moreover, the flyover has been an important point of our election manifesto and the feasibility study is being done. Experts have done a survey and reports are being awaited.”
Further, the Silchar MP made it clear that while the Government is spending Rs 1200 crore for the National Register of Citizens, it is expecting a correct and error-free NRC. “The Chief Minister has assured the people of the State that there is no reason to panic on the NRC,” he added.
