KANGPOKPI: After the local MLA, concerned authority and the state Government failed to listen to the grievances of people plying along Saparmeina – Saikul road despite of fervent appealed, the Kuki Inpi Saikul Gamkai with assistance from local MDC and various social workers revamped the road recently.
The 15 Km. (Approx.) road between Saparmeina and Ekou passing through Konghom area comprising more than 30/40 villages connect Kangpokpi District Headquarters with Saikul Sub Divisional Headquarters and other parts of Saikul areas and serve as the lifeline of thousand people.
Almost a month back on September 19, considering the plights of the people, the Kuki Inpi Saikul Gamkai (KISG) and Kuki Students’ Organization (KSO) Saikul had a joint inspection of the road and draw the attention of the local MLA, concerned PWD Department and the state Government to repair the lifeline of thousand people of Saikul area within a week.

Seimang Lupho, President KISG said that despite of all efforts and appeal, the local MLA who is supposed to response instantaneously remained a mute spectator over the grievances and hardships of his people while the concerned department and the state Government also failed to listen to woes of the people.
Considering the unexpected manner of the local MLA, concerned department and the state Government, we approach the elected member of ADC Sadar Hills from the area and other social workers for assistance in renovating the road and we revamped the road with their assistance in the larger interest of the people, he added.
