CHAMPASARI RESIDENTS TAKE MATTER INTO THEIR OWN HANDS


Siliguri, 11 Jun:

Residents of Champasari Gram Panchayat Unit today took upon themselves to repair the deplorable road leading to Sishabari Village near Milan More after repeated pleas to the government and municipal fell on deaf ears.

A social organization, Sishabari Kalyan Samity led the repair works with the villagers investing both time and labor. According to a member of the Sishabari Kalyan Samity, the villagers repaired one kilometer stretch of the road today.

Many minor accidents have taken place on this road and with the monsoon fast approaching the residents know that this is temporary solution to prevent potholes turning into lakes. The people have demanded immediate sanctioning of Sishabari arterial road to a metal road and have urged the concerned department to take action.
