Dear friends, our cover story this month i.e. the highway to death is indeed a very sad story reflecting the gross criminal negligence on the part of administrators for not taking care of Sonapur (Sonapyrdi) Meghalaya - Assam National Highway 40. The road starting from Durga temple near Sonapyrdi towards upto Meghalaya border is in absolutely pathetic condition since decades. The incident that took place on June 14 at 10 pm where a bus rolled down about 300 feet deep into the gorge below. It is true that the fitness condition of the bus has been questioned. The real issue is that death at this particular belt is a continuous process particularly during the rainy season. It is not understood that inspite of the fact that this belt has been handed over to border road organisation, yet things has not improved. It leads to a question mark.
