25 years pass road not pitched - Villages join hands to fix Mairung Road in Kalimpong

Located 19 kms away from Kalimpong and joining the new Nathula highway, the road connecting Tendrabong, Mairung and Duka Sama has seen 25 years of construction, yet it hasn't till now been given a single touch of oil coal tar (Alakatra).

The politicians visit the adjoining villages under Sakyong GP with the arrival of every election and also bag votes promising the repair of the road. But till now the road remains unattended by any of the politicians.

Knowing that their promises are never to be fulfilled, the villagers and the SSC group people finally came together to repair the road themselves after 25 years of its service.
