Bhubaneswar: Expressing concern over the poor condition of National Highways running through Mayurbhanj district, Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik has written a letter to Union Minister Nitin Gadkari, seeking his intervention.

Naveen has specified that Jharpokharia-Keonjhar-Sambalpur NH-49, passing through Mayurbhanj district is not in a traffic-worthy condition and several publ ic complaints have been received in this regard.

“I would like to bring to your notice that the State is suffering a lot due to lack of timely maintenance/improvement/widening of the existing Nationa l Highways (NHs) which are important communication links in the State,” Naveen stated.

“Further, Hatgamahria-Benisagar up to junction with NH-49 near Singada, passing through Mayurbhanj district has been declared in-principle as an NH from 17th February, 2016. But no improvement work has yet been started,” the letter read.
