The Phulbari unit of the Garo Students Union (GSU) has written to Chief Minister Conrad Sangma seeking his intervention into the sad state of affairs of many remote villages under the Demdema block.
In a letter sent on Friday, the GSU said that villages like Rondupara and Dimakgre are faced with tremendous grievances due to the lack of infrastructure.
“The two villages immediately need a bridge to connect to each other as it’s a lifeline they cannot do without. They currently face problems in connecting between themselves as well as the other sections of the district and need an RCC bridge to ease the problems,” said the GSU.
Further and more important was the setting up of a Primary Health Centre in the area at Rondupara.
“The villages concerned are very far from Phulbari, Tikrikilla or Dadenggre and there have been countless untold stories of villagers dying while on their way for medical care. The remoteness of these villages has added to the woes of the people living in these areas,” said GSU unit president Francewell Marak.
The pressure group entreated the CM to work out a need-based solution to the problems being faced.
