Manipur vehicles not to ply through Nagaland

By The Assam Tribune

IMPHAL, June 12 (PTI) - Buses and trucks of Manipur will not ply through Nagaland until the Centre and the Nagaland government pay compensation for vehicles damaged during the ongoing indefinite economic blockade on National Highways, the Transporters and Drivers Council (TDC) said today.

"Several non-government organisations and militant outfits have been extorting money and harassing drivers, vehicle owners and passengers from Manipur in Nagaland for many years but we (TDC) have been tolerating it," TDC spokesman and general secretary NG Haridas told reporters here.

Several vehicles were destroyed during the ongoing economic blockade on NH - 39 (Imphal-Kohima-Dimapur) passing through a major portion of Nagaland and NH - 53 (Imphal-Jiribam-Silchar) by All Naga Students' Association Manipur (ANSAM), Haridas alleged.

The decision not to ply trucks and buses was taken during an emergency meeting of the council last evening.
