Since 1986 Bhang Bari Road near Sonada in Darjeeling District has not been built
The people in Bhang Bari, which is only around 2kms from Sonada town have been waiting for a road to be built, since 1986... yet till date there is no road access.
Despite numerous small contracts being undertaken, the road had remained unconstructed and people are continuing to suffer.
Especially, patients, pregnant women and school going children have to undertake a harrowing trek to reach the Sonada-Pacheng road.
It is a shame that despite 70 years of independence, the villages in our hills are still devoid of basic infrastructure such as road, drinking water, electricity and health care.
Wake Up GTA - before its too late.
