Incessant rainfall has caused the Tuipi River, which flows in Pherzawl district to swell in the past few days, cutting off the passage between Churachandpur district in Manipur and the state of Mizoram.

Tuipi River served as the sole passage between Churachandpur and Mizoram when it was running dry.

With the flooding of the river, vehicles coming from Churachandpur district towards Mizoram are stalled at Leijangphai village while vehicles coming from the neighbouring state are stalled at Taillian village.

As the RCC bridge being constructed on National Highway No 2 above Tuipi River remains incomplete, Tuipi River which passes between Leijangphai village in Churachandpur district and Tallian Village in Pherzawl district served as the sole passage to Mizoram.

However, the Tuilaphai Bridge that began its construction at the same time with the RCC above Tuipi River has already been completed, as per sources.

Meanwhile, the labours hired for excavation of the hills for the construction of the highway and the villagers from the nearby villages are facing untold miseries due to the swelling of the Tuipi River coupled with the present condition of the RCC Bridge which remains incomplete.
