Cross border trade and business activities at Indo-Myanmar border in Moreh, Manipur was paralyzed Monday following the imposition of a 12-hour highway bandh along the Indo-Myanmar section of NH-39. The bandh which came into effect from Monday morning at 6 am was called by Hill Tribal Council, Moreh in protest against withdrawal of power of Block Development Officer from the ADC, Moreh by an order of the DC Chandel district issued recently. All shops and other business establishments in Moreh town bazaar and Namphalong bazaar remained closed, according to police at Moreh. No untoward incident was reported during the bandh. However, many vehicles remained stranded on the highway, police added. Meanwhile, the bandh is likely to be extended as general secretary, Ginsei Lhungdin of the striking council has threatened that if the district authority fails to meet the demand, despite the 12-hour bandh, they would close down all the government offices located within Moreh ADC.
