Start Mintong-Khasa road  on war footing: Ngandam

PONGCHAU, Jan 12: Pongchau-Wakka MLA-cum-RWD Minister Honchun Ngandam after inspecting Mingong-Khasa road on Wednesday asked RWD officials to start its work on war footing and directed accompanying DC to stop the plying of vehicle on the road for smooth construction.

Ngandam was accompanied by DC, RWD engineers and other departmental officers while visiting the road, earlier taken up under Nano technology but not completed.

Ngandam further said that before assuming charge of RWD, he had entrusted few roads for execution under Nano technology on experiment basis.

However, the technology could not be successful for various reasons, may be due to weather condition and soil status and non availability of construction materials.

Though local engineers were trained properly but the technology failed in two big roads one in Kanubari and other in Pongchau-Wakka assembly constituencies.

However, the work would be taken up on congenital basis now for which direction has been issued, he said.

The 30-KM Minting-Khasa road, earlier taken up by RWD under PMGSY in 2017-18 under Longding division, has been taken up in convention method after inspection of state quality coordinator (SQC) and DC, he informed. (PRO)
