Road to SGH DC office in tatters

TURA, Aug 06: As if mirroring the poor infrastructure present within the district of South Garo Hills, the road leading to the deputy commissioner’s office in Baghmara lies in tatters for over half a decade now.
The road also connects most of the main offices of the district including the SP office and quarters, transport office, housing amongst other important milestones for the district. However the stretch of road which would hardly be more than half a kilometer seems straight out of a road horror show.


The SGH district has been plagued by poor road infrastructure ever since the making of the district 25 years ago and has continued to give travelers nightmares about visiting the place.
“At least this road could have been taken care of the PWD department – which seems to have gone in slumber. Also the DC should have asked for repairs to be done but nothing has as yet. This really shows the district itself in poor light,” said a resident of Baghmara who did not want to be named.
The DC office is set on a hill that overlooks a picturesque Simsang river with the bridge across the river being the longest in the region.
“This just shows how much of neglect the district has seen over the past decade. When people don’t complain on things like these it just shows they are least bothered as of now and have lost hope in the government helping development in the district. Really sad scene,” said a highly placed police source posted in the district.
The DC however could not be reached for comment.
