Bogibeel Bridge: Asia’s second longest railroad inaugurated by PM Modi

Bogibeel Bridge

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Prime Minister Narendra Modi today inaugurated the Bogibeel railroad bridge in Assam billed as India’s longest railroad bridge. The foundation stone of the project was laid by former Prime Minister HD Deve Gowda in 1997.

The 4.94-kilometre structure spans the waters of the mighty Brahmaputra River. Bogibeel Bridge will connect Assam’s Dibrugarh and Dhemaji districts, bordering Arunachal Pradesh.

It will cut the travel time between the two points by four hours and help avoid a 170-km detour. With its proximity to the China border, the bridge also has tremendous significance for India’s defence and has been built strong enough to support the movement of tanks and even fighter jet landings.

Bogibeel Bridge in Assam, which happens to be Asia’s second longest railroad connector, has a lifespan of around 120 years, authorities said.

The Bogibeel Bridge is designed like a bridge that links Sweden and Denmark, The Bogibeel Bridge is India’s only fully-welded bridge for which European codes and welding standards were followed. A fully welded bridge has a low maintenance cost, its engineers say.

The bridge has a two-line railway track on the lower deck and a three-lane road on the top deck. It will reduce the Delhi to Dibrugarh train travel time by about three hours.

PM Modi also flagged off a train – the Tinsukia-Naharlagun Intercity Express, which will run five days a week.

The biggest advantage of the bridge will be an easy movement of troops from southern to the north bank. This means travelling to farthest most point of India’s border with China will be shortened by several hundred kilometres.

The 4.9 km-long bridge was constructed at an estimated cost of Rs. 5,900 crore – exceeding its initial budget of about Rs. 3,200 crore and originally planned length of 4.31 km.

“Early flood in the river Brahmaputra restricted the working season to a very short period of approximately five months – from November to March – and demanded huge mobilization of construction equipment,” Chief Engineer Mohinder Singh told news agency PTI, explaining the delay in the project.

The bridge will be a massive help for residents of the remote districts of Anjaw, Changlang, Lohit, Lower Dibang Valley, Dibang Valley and Tirap in Arunachal Pradesh besides the Dibrugarh and Dhemaji districts in Assam.

The Bogibeel Bridge is likely to play an important role in defence movement along the India-China border in Arunachal Pradesh. The three road lanes of the bridge can act as three landing strips for the Air Force, news agency PTI reported.

Monsoon lands two days early in Kerala, the Northeast

The India Meteorological Department (IMD) has confirmed the early onset of the monsoon over Kerala and northeast India, marking the commencement of the rainy season. This year, the monsoon arrived two days ahead of schedule, heralding above-normal rainfall expected from June to September. The IMD meticulously considered various parameters before officially declaring the onset of the monsoon.

The IMD’s announcement on Thursday signified the initiation of the four-month-long rainy season across the country. The simultaneous arrival of the monsoon over Kerala and Northeast India deviated from its typical schedule, reaching the mainland two days earlier than the customary date of onset over Kerala, usually observed on June 1st. This early arrival echoes a similar occurrence seven years ago, precisely on May 30, 2017.

The early onset of the monsoon carries significant implications for various sectors, including agriculture, water resource management, and public infrastructure. Farmers in Kerala and Northeast India can anticipate favorable conditions for crop cultivation, with the timely arrival of rainfall boosting agricultural output. Nonetheless, authorities must also remain vigilant against potential challenges such as flooding and landslides, which often accompany heavy monsoon rains.

Furthermore, the IMD’s announcement enables stakeholders to undertake necessary preparations and precautions to mitigate the impact of the monsoon season. Adequate infrastructure maintenance, disaster management strategies, and community awareness programs are essential components of ensuring resilience against the monsoon’s effects.

The early arrival of the monsoon in Kerala and Northeast India signifies the onset of the rainy season, bringing both opportunities and challenges for the region. As the country embraces the forthcoming months of abundant rainfall, coordinated efforts across sectors are imperative to harness the benefits of the monsoon while safeguarding against its potential adversities.

Samajwadi Party president Akhilesh Yadav on Thursday said it would be difficult for the BJP to win even 140 seats in the ongoing Lok Sabha elections. Yadav took a jibe over the NDA’s slogan of Abki baar 400 paar, and said, they have forgotten their slogan of crossing 400 Lok Sabha seats. He added the people are so angry that they will make it difficult for the BJP to win even 140 seats.

The SP leader attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi and said he has started stumbling due to anxiety. He accused the BJP of neglecting farmers and waiving loans of only industrialists and promised that the loans of farmers will be waived after the INDIA bloc government is formed. Akhiliesh Yadav was addressing a joint rally in support of Congress candidate from Maharajganj, Virendra Chaudhary.

The former Uttar Pradesh CM accused the central government of deliberately leaking recruitment exam papers so that the youth remains unemployed and in order to snatch reservation. Yadav promised the people that the opposition parties will provide jobs and demolish the Agniveer scheme of recruitment in the Indian army after the INDIA alliance government is formed.

He pointed that BJP is putting up big tents for their events but people are not coming. He further added the BJP is making the government officials sit in the election rallies in plain clothes to fill the tents. Lok Sabha elections are going to take place in Maharajganj on June 1.

Earlier the SP leader told the media that they have seen massive voting in favour of SP and INDIA bloc in the sixth phase. People have extended unprecedented support to them and it seemed that the NDA will be left much behind. He said earlier he used to say that the INDIA Bloc are ahead in 79 seats and the fight is only 1 seat. But now it seems that they are ahead on all 80 seats in Uttar Pradesh.
