SIANG, Sep 14: The Nugong Banngo Kebang has urged the government to release the last installment of fund meant for constructing the Nugong Bridge over the Siang river in Siang District. This bridge connects the forgotten Abor (Adi) land where late Williamson, APO and his doctor late Dr. Gregorson along with other sepoys were assassinated in March, 1911 which culminated in the Anglo-Abor War 1911-12. The foundation stone of Nugong Bridge was laid by late Dorjee Khandu then Chief Minister of Arunachal Pradesh on 12th December, 2008.
Under the leadership and commitment of MLA Ojing Tasing and Chief Minister Pema Khandu, the long pending work was funded for restarting of the construction work. After long drawn out effort for 13 years under their guidance, Nugong Bridge project over mighty Siang River has been connected on 1st June, 2021. The bridge now requires the last fund installment to complete the remaining finishing works like fitting of deck plate, wind cable etc. PWD department went on to the extent of taking amount from private sources on interest but that amount too has been used completely for the bridge, NBK President TK Kopak said.
The Nugong Banggo has made a fervent appeal to the State government for early completion of the bridge as such lifeline bridge cannot be left incomplete to be ruined due to carelessness. DIPRO
