A PWD bridge at Kanikuchi near Rangiya is still lying incomplete even after almost four years of the commencement of work.
The bridge on Chepti-Dimu-Barambai PWD road stretch is considered most vital one for communication linking the entire Paschim Borigog mouza to the other side and further on to Rangiya township. The bridge, being a perennial demand of the locals as well as the regular commuters, including students and daily office-goers for the past several years, is lying incomplete.
Since the tenure of former CPM MLA Ananta Deka, there has been regular demand to construct the bridge. The construction work began during last Congress MLA Ghanashyam Kalita’s tenure but it is yet to complete.
The demand for completion of the bridge’s construction work was pressed upon to the present MLA Bhabesh Kalita, from the ruling BJP, by the local people and student bodies, who also urged for the immediate repair and renovation of the Chepti-Dimu road.
Many locals have expressed concern over the authority’s lackadaisical attitude, despite fully realising the necessity of the bridge. One senior citizen, Abbaz Ahmed of the locality told the Assam Tribune that in the real sense the authorities, and our elected representatives, tend to undermine the amount of inconveniences the people face due to such incomplete projects.
The people have urged the present local MLA to press upon the authority to expedite action for completion of the work for everyone’s benefit.
