Silchar roads in pathetic condition

SILCHAR, Oct 1: Ukilpatty, an area located in the heart of this town, wears a bizarre look due to accumulation of waste materials by the road side. The area, which is inhabited by well-to-do families was a clean place in the recent past, contrary to its present condition. The reason behind the drastic change is due to the growing up of paan shops, rice hotels and a saloon recently. This has raised public gathering and communication in the area.

Also, the main thoroughfares of the town are in a dilapidated condition. Adding to the woes of the people is the apathetic attitude of the PWD and Ukilpatty is no exception. It is to be mentioned that Silchar is a vastly populated town with no permanent dustbin. This results in people throwing their waste by the roadside creating a good breeding ground for germs and epidemics. THE SENTINEL
