DHEMAJI, July 23 - Members of the All Assam Students� Union, Dhemaji district unit have made a bamboo bridge over the Moridhal river at No.2 Jamuguri village, located 7 km east of Dhemaji town on Tuesday.
AASU�s Dhemaji unit general secretary Karunjyoti Chetiya said that the union members along with the Moridhal anchalik committee functionaries and villagers built the bridge, which links Chenimai, Lalung and Kalpanapur villages of Moridhal panchayat with the NH-15 via No.1 Jamuguri.
About 150 families, who were facing innumerable problems due to lack of a bridge on the river, will be benefited from the bamboo bridge link.
The local people said the Jamuguri area under Moridhal panchayat has been deprived of all means of infrastructure and road communication for decades. �The political leaders assured to take initiative for road development with RCC bridge construction over the river at the eve of election, but nothing has been done,� said the local villagers.
AASU�s Dhemaji district president Dipak Sarma and general secretary Kalyan Gogoi have criticised Dhemaji MLA Dr Ranoj Pegu and Lakhimpur MP Pradan Baruah for their indifferent attitude towards the villagers of Jamuguri (Moridhal). They said MLA Pegu and MP Baruah assured of road and bridge scheme at Jamuguri on the eve of election, but forgot all after gaining power.
The AASU leaders also cautioned the elected leaders not to deceive the rural people, who are staring at their help to fulfill their developmental demands.
