As heavy rains continue to lash through Arunachal Pradesh, crucial roads connecting the frontier districts with the rest of the state have been severely damaged by heavy landslides.

Huge portions of the under-construction Miao-Vijaynagar road in Changlang district have been washed off in heavy landslides.

Areas such as the 60 and 62 miles which traverse through the Namdapha National Park have also been washed off.

The Miao – Vijaynagar road which is aimed to be made motorable by April 25 and blacktopped by September this year, is now unlikely to meet its deadline.

According to officials associated with the construction of the road, due to the heavy damage caused by inclement weather, it is unlikely that the project will be completed as per its deadline.

Officials have also blamed some irresponsible commuters for taking the road during the last few days despite warnings from the administration not to venture during rough and inclement weather.

The Additional Deputy Commissioner of Miao, Sunny K. Singh has issued an order under Section 133 CrPC, imposing restrictions on the movement of all types of vehicles – except vehicles used in road construction work and on medical exigencies on the MV Road.

Meanwhile, in Arunachal Pradesh, the two extreme bordering districts Anjaw and Dibang Valley continue to remain cut off from the rest of the nation due to massive landslides in the districts.

As heavy rains continue, restoration work had become next to impossible, officials informed.
