Dibrugarh, Feb 28: Minister of State and Lok Sabha MP from Dibrugarh is facing public wrath. The tea tribe has launched series of agitation against the MP for failing to address their concerns.

On Tuesday, the villagers of Jokai Mohabir Tea Estate staged protest against the MP. Jokai Mohabir tea estate, about 21 kms from Dibrugarh town falls under newly formed Khowang Legislative seat.

Public are angry as the MP failed to visit their village. “In last 10 years, he has never paid any visit to our village nor is he concerned about our issues. Our area has remained neglected,” an irate villager Montu Mura told Hub News.

“The road from Jokai Mohabir tea estate to Barbaruah, which was an election promise has not been built yet. When the BJP government has been taken priority to construct roads then why our road remain neglected?” he asked.

“Our issues are never discussed in the parliament”, Mura added. The villagers also alleged that they were not given any benefit from the Arunodoi and Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojna (PMAY) scheme.

Recently, the Assam Tea Tribe Students’ Association (ATTSA) had urged the top BJP leadership to give ticket to fresh face from Dibrugarh constituency in the upcoming Lok Sabha election. They say that Teli has been a silent spectator to the problems of the tea tribe.
