People of Ranisankail upazila of Thakurgaon are facing immense suffering for want of a bridge over Kulik River. Their long wait for the bridge is not going to end soon.
They use “Sako” (makeshift bamboo bridge) for crossing Kulik river. The villagers have to walk six to seven kilometers extra for not having a bridge to cross the river.
“It has been heard for many years that a bridge will be built. Measurement has been taken several times but no sign of actual work, said Ramiz Uddin of the area. “It seems like slaying the slain” he said.
