Prasanta Phukan, the BJP MLA of Dibrugarh has proposed to the government of Assam for renaming the under construction Bogibeel bridge and change it to Atal Setu.

The MLA had requested to name the bridge after Atal Bihari Vajpayee due to his immense love for Northeast India.

Bogibeel Bridge (4.94 km) whose foundation stone was laid by Atal Bihari Vajpayee is currently under construction. After completion the bridge will become the longest road and rail bridge in India which will connect Dibrugarh to Pasighat in Arunachal Pradesh.
