Blockade supporters on Wednesday smashed windshields of at least five goods laden trucks heading to Imphal with security escort along the NH-39. An attempt to set ablaze a truck was also saved by security personnel. The Senapati District Students’ Association (SDSA) commenced its indefinite economic blockade from Tuesday in protest against government failure to fulfill their demands of improving works on the highway from Senapati district headquarters to Mao which is in a sorry state. State security force escorted back a total of 150 goods ferrying trucks stranded beyond Mao gate in Nagaland owing to the indefinite blockade since the commencement of chakka bandh on January 31. Personnel of 2nd Manipur Rifles under the command of assistant commandant Md Latif escorted the trucks amidst the apprehension of being attacked by the blockade supporters. Normal plying of vehicles along the stretch of the Imphal-Mao section of the NH-39 in Senapati district was also disturbed since Sunday. The SDSA has imposed the bandh in protest against government’s failure to repair the deteriorated condition of NH-39 along the stretch of Senapati district.
