Guwahati | Tuesday, Jul 1 2014 IST
Assam government today ordered suspension of the Rs 3000 crore integrated township project being executed by a Kolkata-based real estate firm on the banks of Brahmaputra in Guwahati.

The order came even as the Guwahati metropolitan administration continued its massive crackdown on illegal constructions in the city, especially those along the water bodies.

Shristi Housing Development Private Limited was executing an integrated township project along the banks of Brahmaputra in the city.

The project is spread across an area of 750 bighas, that comprises hills and forested areas. There have been allegations that the company has flouted several norms, including forest laws, but was given the go-ahead by the Guwahati Metropolitan Development Authority (GMDA) last month.

This morning, Krishak Mukti Sangram Samity leader Akhil Gogoi has threatened to embark on an agitation if the construction of the mega project was not stopped.

Hours later, Kamrup metro deputy commissioner in charge Dr M Angamuthu said the GMDA has issued a "stop construction" notice to the Kolkata based firm which has begun constructing a boundary wall for the project christened as "Shristinagar".

The administration has also banned earth cutting in the hills for next three months. UNI XC BM SS 1913 NNNN
