Agartala, Sept 15: The Assam-Agartala national highway's Barak Valley continues to remain grim as the construction agency is yet to take up repair work on the wounds of the lifeline for Tripura, Mizoram and Barak Valley.

Condition of national highway in several areas- Patharkandi, Kanai Bazar and Hasirganj appeared as worst for vehicular movement. The matter was brought notice to Assam's PWD Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma. Accordingly, he had declared that repair works on the national highway's Barak Valley would start by one week.

Interestingly, two weeks have already elapsed but the agency has not initiated repair work yet leading to big size potholes in the national highway. Sources said the national highway's patch from Patharkandi to Kanai Bazar is most critical.

Opposition Congress has staged agitation demanding immediate repair of the national highway. It also put the blame on BJP MLA Krishnendu Paul for the beleaguered condition of the national highway.

Sending trouble, the ruling BJP has given deputation to the Dy Commissioner of Patharkandi in July but no step has been taken to facelift the national highway. Local people are contemplating to stage massive agitation if the national highway is not repaired before Durga puja.
