Armstrong’s Tamenglong-Haflong Road flagging off with Bike Rally

The people road

Get ready. This February 16 would mark a new season of Hope and Emotional Cheers not only for the inhabitants of Assam, Manipur and Nagaland but everyone. So we must rejoice.

To celebrate the inauguration of the people’s road “Tamenglong-Haflong Road” – A International Bike Rally will be held on February 16, 2013 from three different starting points and all the motorcyclists will finally meet at Katangnam Village, Tamenglong district in Manipur, where a erected monolith will be unveiled with the list of donors written on it, during the main inaugural ceremony on February 17.

With 3 km more to go, the “Tamenglong-Haflong Road“, an initiative led by young 2009 batch IAS officer Armstrong Pame to build a 100-km motorable road involving the local community, without any government funding is expected to complete by second week of February.

Initially, the road connecting three northeastern states (Assam, Manipur and Nagaland) that started its construction in August last year, was earlier scheduled for completion before Christmas. However, the rugged rocky mountain terrain got it delayed by two more months.

Armstrong Pame was awarded the Exceptional Contribution Award of the “gfiles Governance Awards 2012”. He was also nominated CNN-IBN Indian Of The Year 2012 in the Public Service category. (Read here for our exclusive interview with him last month).
