Haflong, June 19: Passengers, particularly from Barak Valley and Dima Hasao, travel with great risk while travelling from Silchar – Haflong as the condition of the road in many locations on the Silchar- Haflong portion of NH-54 E remains dangerous and pitiable since past several months.
After the recent tragic road accident on Silchar- Guwahati road, people of Barak Valley have been forced to travel by NH 54 E through the district of Dima Hasao, despite knowing about the poor condition of the road. The NH 54 E has become the only means of communication as there has been no railway communication between Silchar – Guwahati since May 16.
The locations like Durbin Tilla, Dimbruchera, Kapurchera, Bormuolkoi and Miyunkro are in precarious condition for quite some time and the company engaged in the construction in these stretches is also gaining notoriety for its ibility and sub-standard works, people alleged.
The conscious people of Haflong have opined that road communication has always play a pivotal role for the socio-economic development of the society but here in Dima Hasao, though the people are raising voices for the cause, they have failed to draw the attention of the authority concerned. They alleged that the authority concerned has turned a blind eye to such a genuine issue.
Meanwhile, the people of Dima Hasao and Barak Valley have appreciated the new government in Assam under the leadership of Sarbada Sonowal who has given Parmal Shuklabaidya an important ministerial berth like PWD in his cabinet. They also hoped that this time the problems of the people of Barak Valley, as well as of Dima Hasao, would be addressed.
