Mizoram rural development minister Lalruatkima along with the concerned officials inspected a land subsidence area and its affected building in the surrounding area near the junction of Vaivakawn, Hunthar and Chanmari West localities on Thursday.
After careful spot inspection, the main cause of land subsidence on the road and seven partially damaged buildings was found to be the digging works on the road.
Recently, the state investment programme management and implementation unit (SIPMIU) has done the digging works for laying of pipeline.
Slight delay of filling up the displaced soils from the canal seems to trigger this unwanted consequence.
The minister, who is also the incumbent constituent MLA held face to face meeting with the affected residents and gave them the assurance that remedial measures will be taken promptly.
At the site, officials from SIPMIU, PWD and Geology & Mineral Resources were instructed what’s needs to be done at the earliest to improve the situation.
During this spot inspection, the minister was accompanied by the leaders from this locality.
DM&R Director – FJ Liantluanga, Aizawl district additional deputy commissioner John LT Sanga, SIPMIU Project Director Lalrothanga, T Lalnunsanga, PWD executive engineer and geologist P Sanghnuna were also present at the site.
