Highlights: March – June 2021

Burma Nallah Bridge Completed

Much to the relief of people, the steel bridge over Lomineye (Burma Nallah) was completed within a month or two. This is quite a fast execution of work.

Construction of MV Road Taken over by Kushal Sharma

Since the constructing agencies completely failed their work, now Tinsukia-based contractor Shri Kushal Sharma has taken sub-contract from the contractors, except the portion from Miphoto to Vijoynagar. This contractor has become serious, carrying on their work even in rainy season. In earlier years, the agencies pack up by March.

This is good practice. The roads constructed in rainy and flood days will endure the test of rains.

Role of BRO in MV Road

The CM in his visit to Vijoynagar announced that the maintenance of MV Road will be given to BRO, immediately after its inauguration.

However, it seems their involvement will begin way before its completion. Heard from some sources that stretches of MV Road where retaining walls, culverts, drainage which had not been incorporated in DPR under PMGSY is being surveyed and getting ready to be executed. That’s good move.

Shidi Helipad Tested Landing

On 11 May, a helipad landed safely at Shidi in its newly constructed helipad. In its maiden trip, a medical team arrived to give Corona Vaccines.

With this opening, the option for transporting the PDS and other essentials directly to Shidi can become a reality. Otherwise, villagers had been paying a huge amount for transportation, with 16 Rs per kilo which normally are sold at Rs 3 per kilo.

On 12 May 2021 (Miao), during a delegation to Honble Civil and Supply Minister Shri Kamlung Mossang, he said that the remaining free rice allocated last year, will also be transported to Shidi directly.

174 km Highway, Namchik to Vijoynagar

Heard a two-lane highway has been sanctioned from Namchik to VIjoynagar at the cost of Rs 1,100 crore.

This road was surveyed and approved in 2016 by Ministry of Road, Transport and Highways (MoRTH).

AYSU Leaders Detained Under NSA

Four AYSU leaders and a youth leader were arrested on 23 Dec 2020 in connection with the violence in Vijoynagar on 11 Dec.

And after their police enquiry and judicial custody mandatory period was over, the District and Sessions Court Yupia granted them bail with strict terms and conditions on the 7th April. The next day bail executed.

But the District Magistrate Changlang detained them under National Security Act 1980, right from the Jully Jail gate. Till today, the boys are lodged in Changlang Sub-Jail, instead of a detention center.
