New Delhi Cyclone Yas has been a disaster for people in West Bengal, Jharkhand and Odisha, the effect of which is now increasing in different states. A rainfall alert has also been issued in Bihar and eastern Uttar Pradesh. Meanwhile, a big news is coming from Ranchi. Yas, a bridge over the Kanchi river in Ranchi, the capital of Jharkhand, became a storm.
The Haradih-Budhadih bridge broke through the middle on Thursday. The bridge connecting Tamar, Bundu and Sonahatu in Ranchi district fell at around 4:30 pm. Just three years ago, the Special Development Division was formed by the Rural Development Department at a cost of Rs 13 crore. Due to sudden collapse of this 600 meter long bridge, villagers on both sides are stuck on both sides of the bridge.
The people of village Budhadih say that many irregularities took place during the construction of the bridge. Strength was not taken care of at all and the pillars of the bridge were erected in the marshes, due to which the foundation was weak and could not withstand the storm.
On the breakdown of the bridge, the villagers also say that there is illegal sand mining from the river around the bridge, in which sand is mined by planting JCBs around the sand smuggler river bridge. No action has been taken so far by the administration to stop this illegal mining.
On the other hand, Yas visited PM Modi to take stock of the damage caused by the storm. In Bhubaneswar, the capital of Odisha, PM Modi is meeting the officials and reviewing the situation in the state.
