Assam Government led by CM Himanta Biswa Sarma is mulling over for a period of time for setting up of a trenching ground at Silchar. This was stated by the minister for Urban Development & Irrigation and Guardian minister for Cachar, Ashok Singhal here on Friday.
Earlier on Friday morning, minister Singhal visited the site of the trenching ground at Meherpur along with Silchar Legislator Dipayan Chakraborty, Cachar DC Keerthi Jalli, executive officer, SMB, Ashutosh Deka and chairman, Cachar Zilla Parishad, Amitabh Rai.

“Today I have visited this place and will have a round of talks with Cachar DC Keerthi Jalli and other concerned officials associated with this project regarding preparation of a master plan for setting up of a trenching ground so that a proper garbage disposal can be made maintaining hygiene and ensure trenching ground doesn’t cause any kind of pollution to the neighbouring areas,” mentioned minister Singhal.
