TAMENGLONG-  In these tiring times of COVID restrictions came a new ray of hope from remote rural areas of Tamei Sub Division in Tamenglong district of Manipur where a remote road is constructed by the people for the people. Assam Rifles extended their support to repair the vital Tamei – Dikhuiram road which connects many far flung villages both in Manipur and Nagaland. In absence of any govt assistance to repair this depleted road connecting as many as 35 villages in hinterland, 44 Assam Rifles under the   aegis of 22 Sect AR/ IGAR(EAST) took the initiative & started repairing the link road.

Taking motivation from the initiative of Assam Rifles, the locals from Dikhuiram  village also  pledged   to toil   in   the   sunlight, leaving behind their farm work and joined hands with Assam Rifles to change the fate of many villages in the hinterland.

The repair work had started on 12 Oct 20 and got   completed on 04 Jan 21. Working against all odds, it took 85 days to complete the repair work of 22km stretch of the road. The repair work has come as a New Year gift for the villagers as now they will have access to better education, health, employment, government developmental schemes and markets for self reliance opportunities.
