ITANAGAR | Nov 22 | The Gandhi Bridge being built over Siang River near Upper Siang district HQs Yingkiong has suffered inordinate delay despite its strategic importance for the nation. Many engineers were entrusted with the responsibility since 2006 who failed to achieve the desired progress though the bridge would serve as a lifeline for the people living on the right bank including remote Tuting sub-division and its adjoining areas.
However, sincere efforts of present Executive Engineer, PWD Yingkiong division EE R N Singh and AE Iban Kombo have achieved tremendous progress within two years, not only in expediting bridge works but also in other developmental works of the area, district BJP media cell chairman Takit Miyu, GPM Tanang Miyu, Tokaram Longkap, Tamit Miyu, Tapat Teksang and Ando Sibo said in a signed statement.
The bridge incomplete for many years would be completed very soon due to their sincerity and commitment to the cause of the people, they claimed, all major works have been completed except some minor works for which the excited masses are waiting to see its being made functional.
Such engineers deserve appreciation from all quarters for their tirelessly efforts to provide a thoroughfare bridge over the mighty river.
