Senapati District Students’ Association (SDSA) today reaffirmed its decision and said it would ‘go ahead’ with five-day “Chakka Bandh” on NH-39 starting January 30 midnight against Manipur government’s repeated failure to address its longstanding demand to develop NH 39. According to a statement from SDSA president Pfokrehrü Khrasi, the preview of the bandh would cover “all vehicles” including private vehicles, inter district and state buses, empty trucks, commercial vehicles and exempt only medical, religious purposes, education, fire, military, electricity, press and other necessity. Seeking cooperation and participation, especially from trucks drivers, owners, oil tankers and other commercial vehicles, the SDSA strongly waned against any bandh defaulters. The association said it would not be responsible for any consequence after the said post-Bandh. STEES: Meanwhile, the Surface Transport Eco and Environment Society, Nagaland (STEES) has expressed their full support to SDSA demands and urged Manipur government to concede to their demands. Terming SDSA’s demand for repairing of NH-39 as genuine, STEES president Medo Angami said the prevailing poor road condition of NH-39 has not only affected the transporter but the common people. STEES, a registered organization based in Nagaland actively indulged in assisting and helping the transporter of the NH-39 when ever necessary, particularly during any accident, threat and demands from various elements.
