Imphal, July 8: Residents of Thoubal Kiyam Siphai Babu Bazar and local clubs have appealed the concerned authority to expedite the construction of retaining wall near Kiyam Siphai Babu Bazar bridge as the condition of river bank have been worsened with the incessant rain causing inconvenience to villagers.
The pavement has been broken owing to the construction of the retaining wall and with no other means of connectivity villagers are literally cut off from the rest of the state, said a local Meira Paibi leader.
IFCD started construction of the retaining wall from 9 May this year under the sponsorship of North East Council’s Anti Erosion & Flood Control. However, only one third of the portion of the 90-meter-long wall has been completed. Since various earth movers and excavators are used for the construction work, the river banks have been destroyed, said the Meira Paibi leader.
As the river bank was broken, villagers have been worrying about possible flood from the river water. If the flood happens to break out, various household and agricultural lands would be under water, said an elderly person of the area.
Drawing the attention of local MLA of Wangkhem Assembly constituency, members of Kiyam Siphai Social Welfare Organisation also urged the concern authority to intervene with the ongoing construction work of the retaining wall and expedite the work progress at the earliest.
