Rai on Monday. The steel bridge, a having length 14 m, was constructed by Madhya Bharat Power Corporation Limited (MBPCL), developer of 96 MW Rongnichu Hydroelectric Project, to provide an access to the public of Mangthang and Nimtar villages who had been cut off due to the flood occurring in the second week of June.
It is learnt that the heavy and incessant rain had damaged the drinking water supply of people in villages and the properties of MBPCL and its contractor as well. The water supply pipelines of the surrounding settlements damaged and broken have also been repaired and restored.
