Newly built culvert collapsed

NARI, Jan 3: A newly constructed culvert at Pam village under Nari sub-division in Lower Siang district has collapsed causing much distress and anger among the local residents and the student bodies of the region. There was, however, no report of any casualty in the incident.

Executed by the Nari division of Rural Works Department, the now collapsed culvert, connecting Seren circle with Nari at Pam village, was constructed only 6-7 months ago, according to Ramle Banggo Students’ Union (RBSU).

Claiming that poor quality of works by the RWD division had led to the cave-in incident, the RBSU alleged of ‘gross’ misuse of funds by the executing agency. It demanded stringent action against the concerned authorities and all those responsible for the low quality work.
