On Monday, former chief minister of Assam Tarun Gogoi, was prevented from visiting Dhola-Sadiya bridge in Tinsukia district because of “security concerns”. The bridge is to be inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday.

The construction of the bridge began back in 2011, when the Congress party was in power. The site of the bridge has been taken over by the Special Protection Group (SPG) , ahead of the prime minister’s visit on May 26.

He expressed his disappointment for not being allowed to go on the bridge in a series of tweets. He alleged that he was stopped because of ‘political conspiracy’.

 

He said that the Congress government had laid the foundation of the bridge, carried out the construction and completed the bridge, but the BJP is now trying to take credit for the work.

Tinsukia district deputy commissioner Ranjan Chakravartty said “ The bridge is closed because of the inauguration. SPG has sanitised it. SPG said no one would be allowed to go except the workers.”

PM Modi is to inaugurate the bridge, which is expected to benefit the people of Arunachal Pradesh and Assam. It will also mark the BJP government’s third anniversary at the Centre and first year in Assam.

The Dhola-Sadiya bridge is 9.16 km long, and is being touted as the longest in the country.
