A statement issued by Sr. Jenison, Secy. Phungchung Village Authority, Chandel District, Manipur, said that the road constructed between Japhou Bazar to Phungchong (Phungchung) village under PMGSY -2014 covering a stretch of 4.5 km is yet to be completed till now even after so many complaints to the concerned authority. Only 2.5 km of 4.5 km is completed as of now. Even 2.5 km road completed is also not constructed as per the Project objective.
He added that the road stretching 4.5 km is a Black Toping Sanction under PMGSY to connect Japhou Bazar to Phungchong (Phungchung) village but it is not completed till now creating hurdles for the villagers for walking as well as for driving as the villagers don’t have any other means of transport.
As the complaints submitted to the concern Authority are not taken seriously, the villagers after prolonged deliberation resolved to launch serious agitation against the government if the Project is not completed before this rainy season, the statement added.
