Sambu villages express gratitude to MLA Alfred
UKHRUL, Sep 14 : The joint organizations of Sambu area villages comprising of Sambu Raiping Long (SRL), Sambu Raiping Katamnao Long (SRKL) and Sambu PMGSY & Education Monitoring Committee has commended the local MLA for taking up the initiative to improve transportation facilities in the villages under Sahamphung sub-divisional block of Kamjong district.
Roads connecting Ukhrul town with several villages and the PMGSY road connecting Shirui to Khayang village was badly damaged as a result of the monsoon rain which hampered vehicular movement.
According to a statement issued by the three organizations, MLA Alfred Arthur Kanngam after hearing the plight of the villagers, deployed two JCB excavators to do the needful.
The villagers had reportedly approached the department concerned many times but nothing was done to improve the conditions of the road.
The PMGSY road covering about 85 km from Shirui to Khayang village has been cleared and the inter villages road connecting Ukhrul town, restored. Many portions of the road damaged by landslides during the monsoon season were also repaired.
