After the inspection, Syiem said that the both the roads stretche about 2 km and the blacking topping of the road is needed to ease the entry and exit of the Christian faithfuls who will be organizing a service in December and the other in 2019.
“In this connection I have already sent a letter to the PWD Minister, and we expect that the road construction will start soon, maybe by next month,” he said. “However I will continue to follow up this issue with the government and with my party (UDP) as in the year 2012 I had raised the need for a district and after being elected as an MLA I had even brought the issue on the floor of the House. Since because we were not in power, nothing was done,” he said.
