Araria: A newly constructed bridge over the Bakra river in Pararia village of Bihar's Araria district collapsed on Tuesday.
The bridge connecting Araria's Sikhti and Kursakatta was washed away before its inauguration.

The incident has raised significant concerns about infrastructure safety in the region. A video capturing the collapse depicts the bridge crumbling within seconds, reducing it to debris.

Meanwhile, Office of Nitin Gadkari said in a post on X, "The bridge that collapsed in Araria, Bihar was not constructed under the Central Road Transport Ministry. Its work was going on under the Rural Development Ministry of the Bihar Government."

Congress party's Srinivas BV seized the opportunity to take on the "double engine government" in Bihar.

"The bridge of the double engine government was washed away in water even before its inauguration," Srinivas BV wrote in a post on X.

Last year in June, a portion of a temporary bridge built on River Ganga in the Vaishali district of Bihar was partly washed away by strong winds.

The temporary bridge connected Raghopur to the Vaishali District Headquarters.
