Mail News Service

Jamshedpur, March 28: A delegation of Jamshedpur Mahanagar BJP leaders visited Jaiprakash Setu (Mango bridge) on Monday to review the ongoing repair work. The BJP leaders alleged that the East Singhbhum district administration had embarked on the repair work without making necessary preparations or reviewing the situation of the city.

District BJP president Gunjan Yadav said the one way road on the bridge allowing movement from Sakchi towards Mango had been blocked due to the repair work. As a result of the blocking of road, the traffic witnessed jam for several hours right from early morning till late evening. The situation was especially difficult for school kids who waited inside school vans, cars and buses in the long jam while braving the scorching heat, said Yadav.

The BJP leader said the district administration should have got the bridge repair work done much earlier when the schools and colleges were closed due to the pandemic and traffic flow was relatively lighter.

Yadav spoke to DSP Traffic and demanded change in the no entry timings to make sure that the children do not have to suffer. He said the repair work was one with just one excavator machine and 10 workers. He demanded that the number of machineries and workers be increased to speed up repair work.
