Tripura Govt to repair roads for Rio Olympian Dipa Karmakar's BMW car
Dipa Karmakar, who made India proud by her magnificent feat in artistic gymnastic event at the Rio Olympics 2016, was gifted a BMW car by the Hyderabad Badminton Association. The keys were presented to her by cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar.

However, few days back reports emerged in media that Karmakar wants to return her gifted BMW car due to maintenance and unsuitable roads in Agartala, which are narrow and allegedly not well-maintained to drive a BMW.

Taking note of the concern expressed by Dipa Karmakar, the Tripura government has decided to repair a road near her residence. The government will spend approximately Rs.70 lakh to 80 lakh in the project.

Somesh Chandra Das, Public Works Department chief engineer (roads and buildings) said, "The road near Dipa's house falls among some others that we have selected for renovation. Work is expected to begin next month," Hindustan Times reported. 

Meanwhile, CPI (M) state unit secretary Bijan Dhar has said, "I was told the road (near Dipa's house) will be revamped following her request to the mayor and Urban Development Minister in this regard."
