CM Asks DCs To Disburse NH Land acquisition cases

Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal has asked the Deputy Commissioners (DCs) to fast track the disbursement of compensation in land acquisition cases for construction of 4-lane National Highway in the state.

Taking up the issue of slow pace of four-laning of national highways in the state by NHIDCL, CM Sarbananda Sonowal directed the DCs to disburse all payments to land owners whose lands had been acquisitioned for four lane construction within September 30.

Saying that there were allegations of some DCs wilfully holding back payments to land owners, Sonowal warned that strong action would be taken against DCs found guilty of anomaly in this regard and thereby delaying the four-laning process in the state.  

Reiterating that making a corruption free state was one of the top priorities of the state government, Chief Minister Sonowal asserted that people had high hopes from this government as it had carried out a ruthless campaign against corruption and urged DCs and SPs to make their best efforts to completely eliminate corrupt practices from the system.
