|GMC apathy towards Govt Press Road|
GUWAHATI, Oct 19 - The negligent and apathetic attitude of the Guwahati Municipal Corporation (GMC) towards repairing a leaking water supply pipe on the newly constructed Government Press Road in Bamunimaidam locality of the city has attracted the ire of the residents.
The Government Press Road is a busy road where the government security press, the Pollution Control office, and two important public utility offices are located. It was reconstructed using the cement block technique hardly two months back.
About 20 days back, water started leaking from the underground GMC water pipe. In spite of repeated complaints, the GMC has not responded. As a result, water flowing out of the leaking pipe is damaging the newly laid blocks of the newly renovated road. People are now wondering as to who is going to repair the road if the leaking pipe continues to damage it.
