New dawn of development for the people of north-eastDue to the geographical location of north-east alongwith the geographical location of Bangladesh, the problem of communication is always a major problem for the people of north-east. The condition becomes terrible if we consider the apathy of the leaders who ruled the north-eastern states over the years.
But now the situation has started changing- and it has been changing very fast. In 2017, the Dhola–Sadiya Bridge, also known as the Bhupen Hazarika Setu has been inaugurated connecting the northeast states of Assam and Arunachal Pradesh. The bridge is on the Rangit river, which is a tributary of mighty Brahmaputra. The bridge is the first permanent road connection between the northern Assam and eastern Arunachal Pradesh. Its length is 9.15 Km. making it is the longest bridge in India. This bridge immensely helps both the civilian population and the army personnel of III Corps and IV Corps located in the vicinity at Dimapur and Tezpur.
Today the Prime Minister is inaugurating Bogibeel Bridge. The bridge is over the mighty Brahmaputra and will connect Dibrugarh and Dhemaji districts of Assam. This bridge will reduce the distance for 5 million people of Assam and Arunachal Pradesh. After a long delay of 22 years, the people of Assam and Arunachal Pradesh will be able to taste the sweet fruit of development.
It is certainly a new dawn of development for the people of the north-east.
