Twilang villages pool in money, repair damaged road
Source: Chronicle News Service

Kangpokpi, June 15 2022: For over 80 villages of the Twilang area under the four assembly constituencies of Kangpokpi, Saitu, Tadubi and Tamei, rainfall is synonymous with misery.

The recent rainfall which had destroyed even the many newly constructed alternate PMGSY roads apart from the state's oldest highway had compelled ministers, including the works minister, and MLAs to visit the sites and took stock of the situation.

The visit and inspection by the ministers and MLAs had also given a ray of hope to the people of the area.

However, the return of incessant rainfall for the past 2-3 days has once again turned living a nightmare for the people of Twilang area.

But this time, villagers of Tapon Namsan and Tapon Namguang have come up with an exemplary humanitarian service by repairing the damaged road voluntarily amidst the heavy rain for the commuters to reach their destination safe and sound.

It is worth mentioning that the PMGSY road from Chawangkining to Tapon has become the only connectivity after the main road, the Imphal-Tamenglong road, and the alternate PMGSY road between Thonglang Atongba and Lamchok could no more become motorable owing to the mudslide at Lamlenkon and the absence of proper bridge between Lamchok and Tujang Vaichong Sub Divisional Headquarters.

Unfortunately, some sections of the Chawangkining-Tapon PMGSY road were damaged near Tapon Namsan and Tapon Namguang village and became unmotorable due to rain for the past 2-3 days.

It was when the villagers of Tapon Namsan and Tapon Namguang decided not to solely depend and wait for government's assistance but to extend voluntary service by repairing the damaged road so that the people of the area could travel safe and sound.

They braved the heavy rain on Tuesday and repaired the damaged road with eight Shaktiman loads of stone donated by the villagers themselves.

As a result, commuters could safely travel and reach their respective destinations without any problems for now.

In connection with the voluntary humanitarian service, Dinpi Mareanmai, general secretary Liangmai Naga Council Eastern Zone, said that since the PMGSY road from has become the only connectivity as of now, villagers of Tapon Namsan and Tapon Namguang under the aegis of the two village authorities embarked on repairing the damaged road.

He continued that considering the situation, "we considered depending solely on the government will not solve the emergency problems faced by the commuters and we decided not to wait for the government's assistance but to sacrifice our time and energy for humanity".

He also encouraged other villages to do the same in their respective areas to facilitate undisrupted journey to the commuters.

J Chawang, chairman of Tapon Namsan village Authority, said, "Even a moderate rainfall has become a problem for us as it can easily create havoc in the areas and at such junctures, we do not find waiting for the government's assistance to be a solution".

"Currently, our collective efforts and more importantly humanitarian gesture could play a huge role in a smooth and safe ride for our people", he added.

He also said that the Joint Monitoring Development Committee of IT Road has been the backbone of the area in any disaster scenario while expressing his optimism that the voluntary humanitarian service extended by the two villages would help the commuters.

Meanwhile, JMDC chairman Lutngam appreciated the exemplary act of Tapon Namsan and Tapon Namguang villagers and also urged other villages to follow in the footstep of the two villages during these trying times.

The JMDC chairman also appealed to the authorities concerned and the state's chief minister to acknowledge such a good deed of Tapon Namsan ana Tapon Namguang villagers to inspire others.
