HAFLONG, Aug 10 - A long cherished dream of the residents of Dithur Kachari village has finally come true. A newly constructed approach road was ceremonially inaugurated by NC Hills Autonomous Council chief executive member Debolal Gorlosa.
Earlier, the villagers had to travel two hours on foot to reach the Thaijuari market to sell their produce and collect essential items. In the absence of a road, they had to carry their patients to reach hospital in any emergency. People have been demanding a proper road since the establishment of the village in 1970.
The 4.673-km approach road has been constructed under the Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana at a cost of Rs 338.73 lakh, funded by the Union Ministry of Rural Development.
Gorlosa in the presence of chairperson Ranu Langthasa, executive member Nandita Gorlosa, MAC Ratan Jarambusa and government officials also inaugurated �Baikho�, a traditional dance practising hall, and solar street lights.
Expressing satisfaction over the construction of the road, �Baikho�, solar street light, and football ground, gaonburha Rinkomol Haphila said that since the establishment of the village, many political leaders have been making promises but those have never been fulfilled.
