A reconstructed bridge connecting Boro Lingri to LRC Colony and Notun Basti was inaugurated by Moatoshi Longkumer, MLA 2 Dimapur II AC on February 18.

A press release from the organisers informed that, Moatoshi Longkumer in his short speech thanked God and all the people who had sacrificed their time for the success of the project. He stated that this bridge was for the comfort and benefit of the people and should not be used for illegal activities. He then urged the councils of the various colonies and villages to keep a strict vigil.

It must be noted that the bridge is the lifeline for at least five villages across the river in Assam, used by people living on either side of the bridge who are mostly daily wage workers and individuals from low income households. They commute everyday to go to work or business, the children go to school and was also the closest route to the railway station and all the important markets and facilities. In this regard, in the year 2019, the respective council members approached the MLA with a proposal to build a reinforced concrete bridge large enough for two vehicles to ply.

The inaugural programme was organised by the Bagan Bridge Construction Committee Bor Lingri. Kazheto Sukhai was the chairman and Rev. L. Bendang, pastor, UBC said the invocation prayer. Holuto Awomi, GB, Adivasi Tea Estate Gaon expressed heartfelt gratitude to the MLA. He added that they had approached many authorities to repair the bridge in Nagaland and Assam but without success until now. 

Launched on December 3,1990. Nagaland Post is the first and highest circulated newspaper of Nagaland state. Nagaland Post is also the first newspaper in Nagaland to be published in multi-colour.
