ITANAGAR, Aug 31: Former Chief Minister and Sagalee MLA, Nabam Tuki has appealed to the state government to look into connectivity problem affecting his constituency.
Sagalee subdivision has been battered by the recent monsoon rainfall, and 14 people have lost their lives at Laptap due to landslide, which has also disrupted road connectivity and destroyed various parts of Sagalee area.
Tuki said that nature’s fury has damaged many roads, including parts of the Trans-Arunachal Highway and rural roads in his assembly constituency. He informed that people are facing a lot of problem due to washing away of roads.
Tuki also recently visited Sagalee, Leporiang and Mengio and found that road conditions have worsened and require immediate attention of the government. He said that villagers complained that none of the officials from relief and disaster management department have visited the area even after it was hit by a devastating landslide.
The former CM sought attention of the government toward the connectivity issue and appealed to Chief Minister Pema Khandu to direct the authority concerned to immediately start road restoration work.
Road connection to Doimukh-Toru, Sagalee-Sakiang via Silsango, Yazali-Mengio, Dedolo-Khodaso, Mengio-Kullung, Luksing-Goyahapa, Leporiang-Tabio and Sagalee-Karoi need urgent attention of the state government.
