    256

    IMPHL, May 11: 16 MARATHA Light Infantry under LOGTAK Brigade, over the past one week has been instrumental in providing bulldozer efforts through 9 Engr Regt to connect the remote villages of Henglep Sub Division with NH-02.  The track which has been completed with the joint efforts of the local villagers from Ukha and surrounding area, fulfills a long standing aspiration of the villagers by providing connectivity across the Thangjing ridge.  The area in the past, due to its remoteness, inaccessibility and lack of development has been used for illegal Poppy & Ganja cultivation and for safe sanctuaries by insurgent groups .The new road will not only improve the security environment but will also pave way for more economic development of the area by providing more alternatives to the locals.  The help extended by the army has been welcomed wholeheartedly by the local chiefs association and the general public and they have volunteered to help in the maintenance of the road in the future, in a press released.
