Citizen Forum to Organize Human Chain to Register Protest Against Apathy and Negligence of ANI Administration

Port Blair, Dec 2: The representatives of various non-governmental agencies, organizations, Panchayati Raj Institutions, and general public of Rural South Andaman has formed a Citizen Forum to take up various issues with the Administration due to lack of apathy and negligence.

It has been invariably brought to the notice of the authorities the pathetic and unmotorable condition of road in Rural South Andaman, especially from Bambooflat to Shoal Bay and Ferrar Gunj. It has been more than five years, any major work has been undertaken to repair or maintain the roads. Many summers have passed, but the apathy continues.

The Citizens’ Forum representing almost 07 panchayats have decided to organize a “Human Chain” to register their protest as well as attract the attention of the authorities towards the plight of the common man. The Human Chain will be formed from Bambooflat to Wimberly Gunj on 7th December from 8.00 am to 10.00 am highlighting the indifference of the authorities. 

This has also been intimated to the Chief Secretary, A&N Administration by the Citizen Forum.
