Somewhere in Assam....

Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated the country’s longest rail-cum-road bridge in Bogibeel over the Brahmaputra river in Assam. The PM arrived at the Mohanbari Airport near Dibruharh and headed to Bogibeel in a helicopter.

Inaugurating the bridge that connects Dhemaji and Dibrugarh, Modi and his cavalcade took a ride, stopping in the middle and waving at thousands of people waiting on both sides. Terming the bridge as a lifeline for the people of Assam and northeast India, the PM said, “The dedication of the historic Bogibeel rail-cum-road bridge is a symbol of good governance.” The bridge will reduce the distance between Assam and Arunachal Pradesh.
