KANGPOKPI, March 27: Alleging sticky development of Imphal Tamenglong Road commonly known as IT Road or Twilang Road, the Kuki Students` Organization Sadar Hills today urged the state government and other concerned authorities to complete the construction work before the monsoon season.
The KSO-SH today led an inspection team of the said road.
Speaking on the sideline, Thangminlen Kipgen, president KSO Sadar Hills said that the Imphal to Tamenglong road has been constructed under the North East Council but unfortunately the construction work could not progress as expected.
According to a well-placed source, the concerned department has been deducting six per cent of the funds which account for the sticky development of the work, he alleged.
The deduction of high percentage by the concerned department has drastically affected the contractor’s strategies in executing the work satisfactorily and on time, added the student body leader.
He urged the government as well as the concerned authority to consider the untold miseries faced by the people settled along the road during monsoon season and to initiate appreciable measures so as to render the concerned contractors to complete the construction work before the monsoon season arrive.
The student body also appeal to the concerned contractors to maintain quality in the construction work since the road will not be renovate even after a decade or so.
In the meantime the KSO Sadar Hills urged every individual including various UGs and particularly the general public of IT Road to render their fullest cooperation towards the contractors and workers involved in the construction work and restraint themselves from disturbing the persons involved in work.
