Road condition mocks at BTAD development claim

The much-hyped model BTC is a distant dream in Tangla if catches a glimpse of the vital roads in Udalguri district. The process of development confines to paper only. Example may be made of the Tangla-Bhergaon road which falls under Khalingduar and Mudwibari, Bhergaon BTC constituency and 64 No. Panery LAC, besides No. 8 Mangaldai Lok Sabha constituency, is the only motorable road connecting subdivisional headquarter town Bhergaon with culturally inclined centre of trade, commerce and education - Tangla.

The road has large potholes which give commuters a harrowing experience. While the EM of Khalingduar, Bonjar Daimari, who is also the incumbent chairman of Tangla Town Committee (TTC), laid the foundation stone for the improvement of the Tangla-Bhergaon road from Tangla Charali to a stretch of only 607 metres under the 5th State Finance Commission for the year 2017-18 under TTC at an estimate of Rs 60 lakh on September 10. But even after passage of two months, the work has not initiated.
