It is said that villagers of the area urged the MLA concerned for renovation of the said connecting bridge as it has been a main connecting bridge for the villagers. Being agricultural season now, the farmers use the bridge frequently but the damage on the bridge has been a problem to them for the past many years.  

Instead of repairing, the MLA assured to construct a new bridge but it was constructed at a thinly populated area of Yairipok Bishnunaha and Kongbam Leikai. It is reported that it was not necessary to construct the bridge at the area compared to the necessity of Heirong and Singa.
