She also filed a representation before the Principal Secretary to Department of Rural Development, Govt. of Tripura requesting to complete the said road. But no initiative has been taken to complete the said road and the local people have been suffering a lot by using incomplete and damaged road. The Petitioner resides at village Khamper para beside the said road side. She has been suffering the most over the last two years by using the said road and aggrieved for inconvenience caused by the Respondents. The road is severely fragmented, narrow and full of potholes on the road. No car or motor vehicle can run over the said road.
