Agartala, May 25, 2023: On the day of auspicious ‘Jamai Shasthi’ celebration across the state, locals of Jubarajnagar gram panchayat under Gournagar block in Kailashahar were forced to stage a road blockade due to acute crisis of drinking water on Thursday.
Even after several written and verbal reports from the villagers to the officials of the concerned department, no permanent solution has been found for drinking water.
Moreover in Jubarajnagar Gram Panchayat’s Pradhan and Upa-Pradhan were absent in the area for a long time. Since the panchayat has no Pradhan and Upa-Pradhan for a long time, no development work is being done in the panchayat area.
Even after the villagers informed the BDO of Gournagar Block Rameshwar Chakraborty several times, no role was taken by the block administration. So on Thursday, the villagers got panicked and started protesting by blocking the road of Pax Chowmuhani in Baburbazar area. The besiegers protested by making bamboo barricades on three roads of Baburbazar Pax Chowmuhani, blocking the roads and setting fire to car tyres.
The Irani police station staff and TSR personnel rushed to the blockade site after getting information. The blockaders said that they will continue to block the road until the written assurance is not given by the administration.
Meanwhile, the firemen reached the spot after receiving the information and burnt tyres on the road are washed away with water.
