Pithoragarh, July 4
Disaster-hit villages of Madkot and Garbadhar of Dharchula subdivision will have to wait for three months to get proper road connectivity as Border Roads Organisation officers have expressed their inability to open these highly damaged roads before three months.

Talking to newsmen at Madkot after inspection of the damage, additional director-general of BRO, VK Yadav, said it would take two months to open the 44-km long road from Jauljibi to Madkot as it has been damaged badly and a 3-km long patch has been completely washed away.
“The road which is the essential lifeline for over 50 villages of the Madkot area could be opened in three months as the essential machinery will have to be airdropped,” said Yadav.
He said opening of way from Tawaghat to Garbadhat will also take three months as the vital bridge at Tawaghat was washed away in the rain fury. “The rain fury has damaged BRO roads from Jauljibi to Madkot, Tawaghat to Garbadhar and Munsiyari to Madlot ,” said Yadav.
