Arunachal East MP Ninong Ering on Tuesday met union road, transport & highways minister Nitin Gadkari in New Delhi and discussed the early approval of the much-needed road from Pasighat in East Siang district to Dari in West Siang via Koyu in Lower Siang.
Union minister Gadkari said that the road would be constructed for sure.
“This road will help the people of the eastern part of Arunachal to travel within the State, without touching Assam,” Ering said.
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 capital Itanagar from middle and eastern Arunachal, one has to travel via Assam. But repeated and series of bandh calls by different organisations of Assam at various places affect the people of Arunachal for simple travelling with their State,” Ering said.
Uploading an image of meeting union minister Gadkari on his Twitter handle on Tuesday, the Arunachal East MP stated: “Requested union road, transport & highways minister Nitin Gadkari Nitin Gadkari ji for road construction in Arunachal East (Pasighat to Dari via Koyu). This will benefit the people and enhance road connectivity in our state.”
