Drivers’ association repairs Imphal-Moreh road
IMPHAL, 24th MARCH: With the state government remaining silent over the dilapidated condition of Imphal-Moreh road which serves as the lifeline of Manipur, Imphal-Moreh Tata DI-207 Owners & Drivers Welfare Association has repaired the said road stretch on Friday.
The Imphal-Moreh road where various essential commodities are being brought in through has been remaining in a sorry state for quite some time now with numerable pot holes all along the stretch. Nevertheless, vehicles continue to pass along the stretch on daily basis despite many of the vehicles suffering serious problems. Considering the problems being faced by the drivers coupled with indifferent attitude of the state government, Imphal-Moreh Tata DI-207 Owners & Drivers Welfare Association repaired the road stretching from Tengnoupal to Lokchao by depositing sands/gravel to fill up the pot holes using excavators on Friday.
Speaking to media persons, Association chief advisor Ahanthem Dhakeshore informed that despite the stretch remaining in a very bad condition for a long time, the former Congress government never paid any attention. As such, the condition of the road deteriorated and vehicles suffered serious accidents.
Expressing hope that the new N Biren led BJP coalition government would take up various development programmes in the state as promised and solve the problems of the people by repairing the Imphal-Moreh road thereby making it a safe road to travel, he urged the chief minister to do the needful at the earliest.
