Itagar, March 27: The approach road to the Capital Complex DC office, one of the busiest roads in the state capital, is crying for due attention from the people in the helm of affairs.
Important foundations like Gyan Ganga Vidyapeeth School, Geology and Mining office, and many local resident shares the same road, but the actual fact is that this vital road which served as lifeline for hundreds of officials and students for their daily chores, seems to be a curse for all.
The width of the road is so small that two vehicles can hardly cross each other and even if it does high risk involved in the process as one side of the road has a deep gorge and the other has a drain besides the deadly curve. The condition of the road is simply at its worst.
Ward Councilor Gora Talang while highlighting the plight of the commuters on the road, informed that from the last two years he has been pursuing the state government for the maintence of that road but the answer, ironically, was always the same ‘No Funds’.
“I have served several memorandums to the Chief Minister and planning Director but still there is no feedback from either of them,” he lamented. Talang informed that on August 20, 2013 a letter was served to the Director of Planning by DC for reconstruction of the link road and again on June 12, last year, a memorandum was served but till now no funds were released by the state government.
“The state government should understand that the DC’s office is an important office where everyday hundreds of people of the capital come for their work to be done and for which the road must be maintained as soon as possible otherwise one day a big accident could occur,” he pointed out.
“This road seriously needs the government’s attention”, added the councilor.
Meanwhile, Talang has urged the state government for immediate reconstruction of the approach road for the greater interest of the public.
