Srinagar, Jan 19: Army constructed a temporary wooden bridge in the Boniyar area of north Kashmir’s Baramulla district to mitigate the sufferings of the common people.
A defence spokesperson in a statement issued here said, “Indian Army det at Paro, on receiving information about the challenges being faced by the locals, swung into action, to provide a temporary solution.” 
Ghaggar Hill is a remote village in the far-flung area of Boniyar Tehsil and villagers, especially children and women, were facing challenges in crossing over the perennial Hapath Khai Nala, to reach their homes due to lack of a bridge, the spokesperson said. 
He said that Army’s Chinar Warriors created a 20-foot-long and three-foot-wide temporary wooden bridge, using dead wood and military construction equipment. “The temporary bridge shall alleviate the challenges being faced by patients, children and pregnant ladies, in reaching their home across the perennial Hapath Khai Nala, to Ghaggar Hill Village,” he said. 
The Indian Army, in solidarity with the villagers, continues to proactively step in for humanitarian aid at such remote far flung villages, the spokesperson said, adding, “Previously, the Indian Army had evacuated more than eleven ailing villagers over the past one month, over the sleet-filled and snow-covered roads, to the nearest public health care centre.”
