Itanagar, July 11: Anjaw district in Arunachal Pradesh still remained cut-off from rest of the State since June 20 last as the portion of the road near Mompani have been washed off in the recent flash floods.
“Though the BRO has been working since the day one of the disruption of road communication they are still unable to complete the new formation cutting. The only respite for the people is that they can now move out from the district in transit by changing vehicles at the block point,” informed T R Tapu, circle officer of Hayuliang.
Consumer items have become scarce and the prices have gone up due to the extra cost incurred in the head load transit of commodities, Tapu said in a communiqué here today.
Adding to the woes of the people, there is no mobile network since past several days while landline telephones are lying defunct since last three months, the CO informed.
Meanwhile, fresh wave of flood has badly affected Diyun Township under Changlang district since Monday morning.
The Diyun Nallah swelled up and overflowed its banks following torrential rains of 110 mm in the past couple of days, B K Karki executive engineer of Water Resource Department (WRD) at Bordumsa informed today. Small rivers and rivulets originating from the Manabum mountain ranges often cause havoc in Diyun. The sleepy town is caught between the proverbial devil and deep sea, on one side there being the small streams like Diyun nallah, Jengthukha and on the other side the mighty Noa Dehing River.
The discharge variation in the hilly stream is quite high, the seemingly innocent stream in winter metamorphoses into a demon during monsoon. The flood water receded, but it left trails of devastation.
