MARGHERITA, June 21: 
A road in the 124 no Margherita constituency, Tinsukia district, has deteriorated to the extent that it has turned into a field during the monsoon season. According to the locals, those in positions of power have shamelessly disregarded the agonising struggles of the people, appearing utterly indifferent to their harrowing realities.
The affected road is located in Kamba Gaon, where students face great difficulties attending classes while carrying their shoes and books in hand. Manoj Kurmi, the organising secretary of Assam Tea Tribes Student Association (ATTSA) Tinsukia District Committee, expressed dismay, stating that the residents of Kamba Gaon feel like they are living in the Middle Ages. Even after 75 years of independence, the road in Kamba Gaon continues to languish in a dilapidated state, devoid of any efforts or initiatives to rectify the situation. The lack of intervention or resolution has left the residents stranded, engulfed in a sense of despair and hopelessness, as their pleas for improvement fall on deaf ears.
The deplorable condition of the road in Kamba Gaon is an indication of the lack of progress under the present government. Despite the government’s claims of development, the residents of Kamba Gaon in the 124 no Margherita constituency have not witnessed any improvements. Manoj Kurmi highlighted the struggles faced by students and teachers of Kamba Gaon Primary School, who are forced to carry their shoes and books in hand while coming to school.
It is worth noting that Kamba Gaon Primary School received an A+ grade twice during Gunotsav in 2017 and 2022. However, neither Margherita MLA Bhaskar Sharma nor the Margherita sub-divisional administration (civil) has shown any interest in addressing the issue of the village road.
The school teachers, the village pradhan of Kamba Gaon, and Manoj Kurmi, the organising secretary of the ATTSA Tinsukia District Committee, have expressed their frustration over the lack of action despite repeated requests for the construction of the dilapidated road in Kamba Gaon.
