After the bridge collapse, the leaders alleged shoddy construction. Along with this, there has been talk of corruption in the construction of the bridge. According to media reports, RLJP leader of Sahebpur Kamal Sanjay Yadav said that this bridge has collapsed due to corruption. When complaints about cracks in the bridge were made, the authorities did not pay heed. This was the reason that the bridge collapsed before its inauguration. The bridge fell prey to corruption.

Significantly, a few days back a crack was noticed in the front portion of the bridge. Then on December 15, a letter was written to the authorities regarding the crack in the bridge and on Sunday morning the front part of the bridge collapsed. The portion between pier number two and three of the bridge is broken.

A 206 meter bridge was constructed between Aakriti Tola Chowki and Bishanpur from the Ahok Gandak Ghat side of Sahebpur Kamal police station area. The construction work started in the year 2016 and was completed in the year 2017. Its construction cost was Rs 13 crore. However, traffic on the bridge could not be started due to lack of access path, but even before the inauguration, it started to crack and the middle part of the bridge broke completely and fell into the Gandak river.
