Recently, the Kuda ‘B’ Youth organisation (KBYO) held a special meeting to deliberate various agenda in connection with misusing the Dhansiri Bridge.
Such activities included – late night partying, drugs and alcohol abuse leading to brawls/public disturbance, littering at the bridge.
In a press release, KBYO president Rokovilie Savino and secretary Keviuchu Meyase informed to impose a total ban on misuse of the bridge and it’s adoption of a 4-point resolution.
KBYO resolved that no person or groups would be allowed to loiter on the Kuda bridge especially at late nights apart from normal commuting.
However, side barricades would be set-up to prevent elements from undue occupation, thereby terminating the space misuse on the ends of the bridge.
The organisation further informed that anyone caught indulging in alcohol consumption, abusing drugs, partying, disturbing public peace and tranquillity with loud music at both ends of Kuda bridge would initiate such activities at their own risk.
“Anyone caught indulging in alcohol consumption, abuse of drugs, partying, creating nuisance, disturbing public peace and tranquility with loud music, etc., on/or at both ends of the Kuda Bridge shall be doing so at their own risk of facing appropriate action by the KBYO for which the youth shall not be held responsible,” it warned.
All these responsible ones will have to face “appropriate action by KBYO”.
It further added that anyone caught indulging in such activities or even throwing waste disposals on the river would be penalised with monetary fines as per quantum of offence.
KBYO informed that it would request the responsible authority to install flood lamps at both ends of the bridge at the earliest.
The organisation further mentioned about requesting all responsible departments to fix wire-mesh/nets along both sides of the bridge railings.
Besides, it will help to prevent throwing of hazardous waste materials (including decomposed livestock) into the river while at the same time.
