Bagang appeal the denizens of the capital city to come forward, support the issue for a good and durable road and understand the problem if the four lane road remain like as of present where there is no scope for parking and utility service and we will continue to face the same problems of traffic problem now and then and even in future.
“Our patience is running out, we have already waited for a very long time but sadly there is invisible progress in this regards.
“In 2006, GoAP floated a notification which cites that in Township areas, the highway needs to be kept 30/30 and 40/40 metre in others. As per the notice, any government-owned land (Forest, Agricultural, and Horticulture) or property along the National Highway is exempted from compensation scheme. In 2016-17, highway width for Capital township area was reduced to 12/12 mtr from government’s kept 30/30 mtr. Even from the 12/12 mtr scheme, we have found that 4 meters of usable space are not there.” He claimed.
Meanwhile, the student union also pressed that it wholeheartedly supports voices raised by other forums and union regarding TAH issue at various places of the state
