Months-long construction halts cripple Maharajganj market


BY TC News Desk

Agartala, 10th July 2024:   For many months, residents and traders around Maharajganj market have faced severe hardships due to the ongoing and stalled construction of a drain by the Public Works Department. The road, a vital artery for the community has been cut causing significant inconvenience and economic loss.

“The road was cut for drain construction, but then the work stopped for reasons unknown,” said one of the affected traders. “Customers stopped coming because there was no proper walkway. After a few days, we built a makeshift bridge using bamboo with our own money.”

This temporary solution, referred to as a “Sanko,” has been in use for several months. However, frustrations are mounting as the construction work progresses in fits and starts. “Sometimes there’s activity, but then it halts again. There’s no consistency,” another trader remarked.

The situation has been exacerbated by the monsoon season, which has turned the area into a muddy mess. “We are suffering unbearable pain,” said a local businessman, highlighting the plight of both traders and pedestrians. “The soil cut for the drain has been left on the roadside, making it impossible to move without getting stuck in the mud.”

Local traders have expressed their urgent need for resolution. “We demand the government’s immediate attention to this issue,” one businessman pleaded. “This problem needs to be solved quickly so that normalcy can return and our businesses can recover.”
