“Immediate plans to curb Traffic and Parking problems in city,” says DC Kamrup (M), Biswajit Pegu
GUWAHATI: Addressing a special press conference in the city, Deputy Commissioner, Kamrup (M) Biswajit Pegu said that he wanted to prepare a coordinated plan to curb the traffic and parking problem in the city.
The immediate plan, however, is to ensure that the Republic Day celebrations are carried out in the city smoothly.
The Commissioner upon being questioned on the action plan for Guwahati said that he wanted to curb the traffic and parking problem in the city. "There's lack of coordination among the various departments. Unless they work together and get cooperation from the citizens, these problems cannot be solved.”
"I prefer moving around the city rather than sitting at one place (office) so I'll try to visit as many areas and lanes as possible. I'll see what problems prevail there (water, roads, drainage, etc) and accordingly take action," he added.
Biswajit Pegu originally hails from Dhemaji. He pursued his HS from Cotton College, Guwahati and graduated from Hindu College and completed his post graduation from Jawaharlal Nehru University in International Studies. He is an IAS officer from the 2009 batch.
