Bagaha: A bridge constructed over Gandak rivulet on the demand of residents of Rampurawa, Bherihari, Lakshamipur and Parsauni villages under Valmikinagar police station in West Champaran district nine years back with fund provided by the Zonal Development council (ZDC), Bagaha, is yet to become operation.

Constructed at an expenditure of Rs 17 lakh, the bridge is not being used for want of an approach road on both ends. Sources said village Dhanahiya resembles an island surrounded by the rivulet from all sides and becomes inaccessible during monsoon when the water level rises.

Bagaha ZDC member Pramod  alias Tejpratap Singh said had the bridge been operational forest land grabbers and woodcutters would not have encroached on forest land and vigilance on Nepal border by Shasastra Seema Bal (SSB) would have been still more effective. The SSB has its office near Rampurawa village. “We have raised this matter at  several meetings of the ZDC. All illegal activities in the area  will be checked as the SSB men will start moving freely. We hope the district administration and the Bihar government will pay heed to our grievances and construct the approach roads on the both sides soon,” said Singh. Th foundationstone of the bridge was laid by CM Nitish Kumar in  2007, said ZDC member Tejpratap Singh.
