Kamrup Deputy Commissioner, Kailash Karthik N, recently visited Lower and Upper Langpih (Lampi) along the Assam-Meghalaya border and took stock of the problems of the residents in the interior areas.

Officials of the district accompanied Karthik, and the visit was to understand the ground situation and take stock of issues such as dilapidated roads, shortage of drinking water, absence of hospitals and high schools in the area.

“Residents of the area, which is far away from the district headquarters, have often complained about the lack of development. So it was apt on my part to assess the problems from the ground,” he said.

The DC also led a delegation to the border outpost (BOP) in Upper Langpih and took stock of the problems faced by the police personnel stationed there.

Asked about complaints of encroachment, he said that the issue has been discussed in the meeting with the DCs of West Khasi Hills and Ri Bhoi and that there were no new allegations.

Kamrup district in Assam shares boundaries with both West Khasi Hills and Ri Bhoi districts in Meghalaya.
