Hailakandi will be developed as model town under the National Green Tribunal (NGT). This was announced by Minister of State for Urban Development Department (independent) Pijush Hazarika while laying the foundation stone of Nehru Children’s Park and inaugurating the Wholesale Fish Market at Herbertganj in Hailakandi town on Thursday evening.

The Nehru Children’s Park will go in for major facelift against which Rs one crore has been allocated. The Fishfed building at Herbertganj market has been built at a cost of Rs 1.80 crore.

Speaking at a function organised at Hailakandi Municipal Board premises, Minister Hazarika said eight towns of Assam will be developed as model town under NGT, out of which Hailakandi is one among them.

Hazarika said plans are in the pipeline for installing 10 tower lights and solar lights in Hailakandi town as part of beautification drive by December. The Minister revealed that solar lights have been installed in 97 towns of Assam. Hazarika said Rs 2.82 crore has been already sanctioned for development of roads in Hailakandi town and Rs one crore for drainage.

Saying that there will be no dearth of funds for development of Hailakandi municipal areas, Hazarika warned that he would not tolerate any irregularity or anomaly in execution of work and funds would be stopped forthwith if irregularity is detected at any stage. He appealed to the denizens to extend support to the Municipal Board for sprucing up Hailakandi town.

Hazarika said that the state government has accorded equal priority to the development of towns and villages. “Assam can march triumphantly on the path of development if the towns and villages develop equally. That’s why our government has been working relentlessly for ushering in development of both Barak and Brahmaputra valleys,” he added.

MP, Kripanath Mallah, former minister Gautam Roy, MLAs, Kishore Nath, Mihir Kanti Shome and Krishnendu Paul and District BJP President, Hailakandi and Cachar, Subrata Nath and Kaushik Rai also spoke on the occasion. Deputy Commissioner, Keerthi Jalli presided over the function.
