The economic blockade on the NH 39 passing through Manipur has affected normal life in the state, reports UNI. Demanding repair of the highway, Senapati District Students’ Association (SDSA) had imposed economic blockade from November two. Following the blockade, over 200 trucks were stranded on the highway and the drivers were facing untold misery. Considering the hardship of the drivers, the trucks were allowed to move towards Imphal yesterday. The SDSA spokesman said the blockade was continuing and only passenger bus services would be allowed to move on the highway. The SDSA members were also checking inter-state buses plying on the highway to know if the vehicles were carrying any goods for commercial purposes. Following the blockade prices of essential commodities has sky rocketed and oil pumps were randomly closing down due to shortage of petroleum products. Meanwhile, official sources said the state Works Minister K Ranjit, Education Minister L Jayenta and MLA K Raina have gone to Senapati district to see the works taken up on the NH-39. They were expected to meet the members of the SDSA for the talk, the sources added.
