He maintained that currently there is enough stock and the bridge will be completed very soon. However the CO failed to give a specific time frame. Speaking to media BJP Manipur Pradesh spokesperson, RK Shivachandra it is shocking to learn that vehicles with 24 ton load are not allowed to pass bailey bridge in Barak and Makru.
