Odisha Villagers Build Their Own Wooden Bridge After Administrative ‘Laxity’

People of Kuturakend from Titilagarh block are constructing a wooden bridge after administrative laxity

Desperate times need desperate measures….these people of Kuturakend from Titilagarh block are constructing a wooden bridge. Fed up with the alleged administration’s laxity of constructing a bridge, these villagers have taken up this task in their own hands. According to the local residents, these people often struggle to commute during rainy days. No help from the admin has forced these people to build a bridge with bamboo and wood planks.

With the approaching of the monsoon season, the water level of the nullahs goes as much as around 6 ft, rendering the villagers marooned for at least 3 months. The local residents have also drawn the attention of the concerned departments and local MLA in this regard, but all their please have fallen flat.

The villagers have collected bamboo and planks from their own sources and put in labour voluntarily to build a bridge. People also claim that the bridge is strong enough for even school-going students to use during rainy days.

Meanwhile, the Principal Advisor to Odisha’s Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik, Asit Kumar Tripathy has appreciated the efforts of the villagers and assured them that a permanent bridge over drains will be constructed soon.
