Haflong, March 14: The Dima Hasao Contractors’ Association submitted a memorandum to State PWD Minister Parimal Suklabaidya recently regarding fulfillment of their long-pending demands. The demands include immediate renovation and repair of roads like the Phasi-Garampani-Haflong (PGH) Road, Silchar-Shillong (SS) Road connecting Mahur area Kejurband-Koladisa(KK) Road, Langting-Longren-Wajao road connecting K-K Road, Maibang-Semkhor Road, Diyungbra-Noyapur- Manderdisa connecting Mahasadak at the point Manderdisa, Langting-Thaijuwari road via Grayung and Phalaipha Hadi Polling Station with construction of Bridge over Diyung River, Dehangi-Diyungbra (DD) Road-Umrangsu 15 km near tea garden via Dimadao Wapu Polling Station, Warilampu, Kekrang, Waridiphlai and Doisongtom village, and Hatikhali-Phalaipha Hadi via Dikhlem Daopher, in Dima Hasao district,

The memorandum by Jayanta Nunisa, president of Dima Hasao Contractors’ Association, stated that immediate action was needed for proper renovation/repairing of the major and minor road communications within Dima Hasao district in the greater interest of the general people, mainly the particular poor villagers, considering that promotion of the rural economy was very necessary. Due to deplorable road condition in between Haftong and Dehangi on the way to Guwahati, mainly in Lower Hafalong Power Grid area and near Diyung river bridge, Junu la, near Gururi and Polytechnic Institute’s building construction area, night super buses had already stopped plying on these roads. Further, other ASTC and private buses had also reportedly halted their services owing to road communication. The Dima Hasao Contractors’ Association demanded that renovation and repair of the roads should be completed before the ensuing rainy season, failing which the association might resort to road blockades in the near future.
