Uninterrupted rain during the last couple of days have caused severe landslide in various parts of Dima Hasao district of Assam which blocked the Haflong-Silchar National Highway on Sunday.
This has affected road communication with the other parts of the country.
Locals alleged that the National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) did not give any importance to repair or reconstruct the road in the valley.
The road condition has become worst due to the uninterrupted rain for past few days.
Though the 25 km long Jatinga-Harangajao area of the Haflong-Silchar National Highway is under NHAI, locals alleged that the authority has failed to reconstruct the road.
According to information, the highway expansion project in the Barak Valley was given to Silchar’s Lakshmi Motors Construction Company in December, 2017.
But the company did not do any work for the development of the road.
Eventually travellers along with the locals have been suffering till date.
Due to no proper drainage system, the road becomes inundated and muddy in just a half-an-hour downpour.
The adjacent Miyokro area has also been inundated because of the uninterrupted rain.
