The longest bridge of India has been constructed across the Brahmaputra river in Sadia district of Assam. Prime Minister Narendra Modi reached Guwahati for the inauguration of the 9.5-km bridge which connects Assam and Arunachal Pradesh. This bridge will reduce the distance between the two states considerably. The PM in his address at the inaugural function said that the bridge, which was long awaited, was finally complete. He said that under his government the bridge would have been ready 10 years back. He changed the name of the bridge from ‘Dhola-Sadia’ to ‘Bhupen Hazarika’. This bridge has been named after the famous musician, singer, composer and recipient of the Dadasaheb Phalke award and Padma Bhushan Bhupen Hazarika.
