MLA Yadav takes immediate action to address problems at government degree college of Dharmanagar


BY TC News Desk

Agartala, 22nd June 2024:   Following the Yoga Day celebrations, MLA Yadav Lal Debnath was left visibly shocked after learning about the deplorable condition of the old building at Dharmanagar Degree College. The legislator accompanied by officials from Bagbassa Youth Morcha took swift action to address the concerns of the college community and the residents.

Arriving at the college early Friday morning to attend the Yoga Day program, MLA Debnath was approached by residents who voiced their grievances about the nightly anti-social activities occurring in the old college building. “The complaints about drunkenness and loud noise were alarming. I had to see it for myself,” stated Debnath. By 1:30 p.m., he, along with the Acting Principal Gautam Das and other officials, conducted an inspection of both the current and old college buildings.

During the inspection, MLA Debnath confirmed the residents’ complaints. “Empty liquor bottles and other intoxicants were scattered around the old building,” he reported. “The situation is dire, especially with the women’s hostel located just behind this old building.” Opened in 2015, the hostel too has suffered from neglect, becoming a hotspot for similar anti-social activities. “Miscreants have broken in, stealing various items. This is unacceptable,” Debnath emphasized.

The legislator vowed to escalate the matter to the police administration. “We need to restore order and safety here. The old building is on the verge of collapse, and urgent measures are required,” he asserted. Debnath advised Principal Das to take immediate steps to address these issues, including writing to the college authority for the construction of a campus hall. “When I was a student here, the college had only about two hundred and fifty students. Now, it has over six thousand. We need proper facilities,” Debnath said.

Debnath, an alumnus of the college, promised to improve the institution’s infrastructure. “I am committed to making the future course of this college smoother, not just as a legislator, but as someone who has studied here,” he declared.

The MLA also highlighted the long-standing issue of a half-constructed bridge on the route from Dharmanagar town to the college. “The work on this bridge began a decade ago and has been stalled due to various complications,” he explained. “After the BJP government came to power, I took this matter up with the state chief minister and the chief engineer. The previous leftist regime’s corruption hindered progress, but those obstacles have been overcome.”

Debnath assured that re-tenders for the bridge’s completion would be issued within the next few days. “Even if the work cannot commence during the monsoon season, it will start before Durga Puja,” he promised. “We need cooperation from local contractors to see this through.”

Accompanying the MLA during these inspections were Bagbasa Mandal Vice-President Subhash Das, Dakshin Ganganagar Village Chief Vibhuti Bhushan Bhattacharya, Area Councillor Tapati Das, and other leaders from Yuva Morcha including Joy Gobinda Pal, Biswarik Bhattacharya, and Aparajit Sharma. Their presence underscored the community’s collective concern and commitment to resolving these issues.

Debnath reiterated his dedication to addressing the problems at Dharmanagar Degree College and improving its infrastructure for the benefit of current and future students. “Together, we will bring about the necessary changes,” he affirmed.
