The helicopter landing pad in Gandhigram (Shidi) in Changlang district is yet to be made operational months after its completion. A village of more than 500 houses, Gandhigram is not connected by road or air. Circle headquarters Vijaynagar is five hours’ walk, while Miao, the nearest town, is four days’ walk from Gandhigram.
