Assam Govt urged to lift �chakka bandh�

By Correspondent

DIMAPUR, Oct 21 � Nagaland Chief Secretary Lalthara has asked his Assam counterpart NK Das to instruct the concerned district administration to take up necessary steps for lifting the �chakka bandh� imposed on the movement of trucks carrying essential commodities to Nagaland.

The ongoing bandh is being imposed by the Hills Area Trucks Owner Association (HATOA) from Mariani and Jorhat since October 17 last under the pretext that the road to Nagaland from Mariani is in a deplorable condition.

Four districts of Nagaland namely Mokokchung, Tuensang, Zunheboto and Longleng are suffering the brunt of the bandh.

In his letter, Lalthara informed that the particular road in question is a GS road under Border Roads Organisation (BRO) and stated that the concerned organisation has taken up emergency repairs in several locations where the condition was bad and now improved for the better.

Lalthara further informed his Assam counterpart that the association calling the bandh is not allowing movements of trucks from Assam to Nagaland via NH-61 connecting Amguri with Mokokchung. He also expressed regret that non-movement of trucks carrying essential commodities has led to scarcity of essential commodities in four districts of Nagaland.

The Mokokchung Chamber of Commerce & Industries (MCCI) had earlier informed the State Government of the ongoing situation and the impact on the economic activities of all the four districts experienced in a day or two of the bandh and resulting in a complete chaotic situation.

The MCCI also expressed apprehension that if the bandh continues, many economic activities in all these districts will come to a grinding halt.
