Koirengei Awang Chaokhat Thourang Committee urged the state government to construct the road from Koirengei Bridge to Sekmai Awang Leikinthabi giving an ultimatum of 11 days to fix the road otherwise the tax which goes to Forest department will be collected by the committee for the construction of the road.
Addressing a press conference today at Manipur Press Club, Imphal, Nandalal Angomcha, Advisor, Koirengei Awang Chaokhat Thourang Committee, said that the road is 7.5 km long which passes by various places such as Leikinthabi, Wabagai, Awang Potsangbam Khullen and Awang Potsangbam Khunnou. The road is a lifeline for many people and above all many heavily loaded trucks ply on it. Nandalal further added that the road was given black topping in 2013 and also fixed the potholes of the road in the last two months but it is still in deplorable condition. He added that the committee will wait till Jan 26 to construct the road by the concerned authorities and if failed the committee will start collecting the tax which goes to Forest department from Jan 27. He further added that the Koirengei Bridge which was constructed in 26th Jan, 1965 is in an awful condition whereas other Bridges such as Sanjenthong, Salanthong, Heingangthong, Khuraithong, etc which were built at the same time have been newly constructed. He added that the MLA of Heingang constituency has given assurance to construct the bridge as a tender of Rs. 30 crore have been reserved for the construction but it will take two to three years for the construction, hence the committee will impose certain actions to control the Bridge from its destruction. Nandalal further added that the Sekmai dam project worth 4.22 Crore which was started constructing from 2010-11 under the sponsorship of NEC is still unfinished and the construction is not proper. He added that the wideness of the canal should be 15 feet in order to give proper irrigation at the end of the dam.
