How did the chairman of the Tinsukia Municipal Board resolve the family dispute?


Tinsukia: What does the chairman of the municipal board do? The answer may vary depending on who you ask, but it is possible that resolving family disputes may not be the top answer. Yet, this is exactly what the chairman of the Tinsukia Municipal Board, Janita Barua, did, while ensuring that a family of four gets an electricity connection as soon as possible.

Shakti Das, 58, and her family of four have been struggling for the past six months to get a No Objection Certificate (NOC) for electricity connection from their younger brother Pranab Das.

Shakti Das and Pranab Das are residents of Borpathar under Ward No. 15. He lives on a piece of land named after his late mother.

Barua said he visited their residence and observed the brothers’ financial situation. “I talked to the two of them and found out that there were minor issues between them, which were hardly serious, and they resolved it through dialogue,” Barua said.
“Now that Pranab has agreed to give NOC to his elder brother (Shakti), I hope his struggle for power – a fundamental right – is over. I am happy to be together. With the promise, the Prime Minister has promised to give a house to each of them under the Awas Yojana, ”said Barwa.
