MORIGAON, Jan 6 - Apprehending breach of peace and order due to the plying of e-rickshaws and e-carts on the main roads of Morigaon town, the Deputy Commissioner of Morigaon on Friday issued a prohibitory order with respect to the plying of e-rickshaws and e-carts on the busy roads of the town.
The prohibitory order will apply to the Jagiroad-Morigaon Road (St Teresa point to main town), Nagaon-Morigaon Road (Civil Hospital Road to main town), Lahorighat-Morigaon Road (Motiram Bora Road) and Damal-Dharamtul-Morigaon Road (Usha Chariali to main town).
