Bihar: Bridge’s Approach Road Washed Away Hours Be

In an embarrassing moment for the Bihar govt, the approach road to a newly built Bangaraghat bridge in Gopalganj was washed away hours before the inauguration event by CM Nitish Kumar. 

CM Nitish Kumar was to inaugurate the Bangaraghat bridge on Wednesday morning through video conferencing, but on Tuesday night, the approach road connecting the bridge around 12:30 was washed away in floodwaters. As soon as the 50-meter road was broken, the top officials of the Bridge Construction Corporation of the Bihar government reached the spot and the road was repaired by gathering more than two JCB machines and hundreds of labourers. Interestingly, the repair work was completed exactly 30 minutes before the inauguration.

Opposition leader in Bihar Legislative Assembly and RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav tweeted the video of the broken approach road and took a direct shot at CM Nitish Kumar.

Tejashwi Yadav tweeted another video saying — ‘ Call it tragedy or irony. Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has inaugurated this dilapidated path bridge of 509 crore today. The Bhishma Pitamah of moral, social and economic corruption who has entangled millions of Biharis in the stale pages of history and ruined their lives, will not speak on this.’

Tejaswi Yadav also questioned the hasty inauguration of the bridge and said that ‘Nitish Kumar hastily inaugurated the Bangaraghat bridge being built at a cost of 509 crore for years now but the approach path of the bridge is broken. Why are they in such a hurry to inaugurate broken bridges, paths, and dams? Is a broken path even before the inauguration is revealing their black corruption?’

On 11 April 2014, Chief Minister Nitish Kumar laid the foundation stone of the Mahasetu project at Rajapatti at a cost of Rs 509 crore and it was hastily worked as the elections were close, breaking moments before the inauguration. However, this is not the first case in the JDU-BJP government. Earlier, a bridge built on the Gandak River in Baikunthpur of Gopalganj was washed away 29 days after the inauguration last month. The bridge was built on Soti, a tributary of Gandak, and was inaugurated on 16 June.
