The visiting BJP leaders felt the urgent need of construction of proper flood control at Jarku and Shamsan-ghat area so as to prevent further erosion of soil toward Pasighat township side and Advance Landing Ground/Pasighat Airport.
The visit to the flood erosion side by BJP leaders was necessitated due to direction of Chief Minister, Pema Khandu who is said to have serious concern about the flood damages by Siang river in East Siang district along both banks of right and right bank of Siang river, the sources informed this evening.
