TURA, April 2 - The much-vaunted German technology road from Resubelpara to the town of Mendipathar in North Garo Hills came up for ridicule due to non-completion. The road is fast becoming any driver�s nightmare.
The United Democratic Party (UDP) yesterday questioned the delay in completion of the road, which is already half-finished and requires macadamising to be completed.
The road in question was initially half-complete just before the annual ABDK Sabha, which was held at Resubelpara, i.e., two years ago, with the contractors ignoring construction of the road.
�The road has in the meantime become a nightmare for travellers. With early rains, the slippery nature of the soil has made travel difficult. Non-completion is condemnable and as residents of the district, we demand its immediate completion,� said UDP joint secretary, Anand Marak.
The party further questioned the disparity in development, asking as to why only North and South Garo Hills were being neglected.
The Deputy Commissioner of NGH when contacted said that the PWD team had been alerted on the matter and construction of the road was to commence from the month of March, but is yet to get off.
�The PWD had through an order asked the contractors, i.e., CC Constructions to complete the road immediately, but the same is yet to start. I will seek an answer once again regarding the status of the construction,� said DC SC Sadhu.
Another road that connects the DC and SP office is also now in a state of tatters, but repair work is yet to start.
