During rainy season the people suffer badly, they remain completely cut off from the rest of the state and the country as it gets flooded in the absence of proper road.
“The people who are living in and around this areas connected by this road are facing immense and untold hardship as the road are completely neglected by the central as well as the State Government for many years,” he said.
