He said the construction of the Pasighat-Dari road would be “a boon not only to the people of East Siang but all the districts in the eastern part of Arunachal Pradesh.”

To reach state’s capital Itanagar from  middle and eastern Arunachal, one has to travel via Assam. But repeated and series of bandh calls by one or other organizations of Assam at various places affect the people of Arunachal too for simple travelling with the state of Arunachal Pradesh.

The construction of this road will ease the repeated road blocked problems via Assam due to bandhs and strikes.
