Concern over a delayed bridge

The Namrup Lalpaguri Ghat Bridge over the river Disang has been in a bad shape causing immense suffering for the commuters.

The temporary bridge is the sole route  for the people of  Namrup in Lalpaguri Ghat  which was washed away by the flood waters causing immense inconvenience to the people of Nalini Pathar ,Japihojia, Utarhundar, Duinon hundor, Borochalli, Narayan Pathar, Tiklagor, Borpatra, Nepalikhuti and  Panjabi. The incessant rains worsen the situation.

Former Sonari MLA Sarat Borotoky laid the foundation stone of the bridge in the year 2011-12. But still  the construction is delayed forcing the people of that area to urge the government to take necessary step for immediate completion of the bridge .
