Nagaland contractors and suppliers’ union (NCSU) has demanded that state government make effective interventions to restrain the prices of cement and M.S rod, which has shot up from Rs. 3, 400 and Rs 320 to Rs. 345 and Rs. 3, 800 respectively within one month in Dimapur.
Also, pointing out that costs of all other construction materials have skyrocketed, the Nagaland contractors and suppliers’ union president Pele Khezhie and general secretary John Kath, in a memorandum to the state chief minister Neiphiu Rio, said both contractors and private constriction can no longer bear the price rise.
The union further said that it has not other option but to protest against the “random price rise by the so called marwaris or wholesalers” till justice delivered.
It may be noted that Dimapur district administration, after consultation with president/general secretary and office bearers of hardware merchants’ association Dimapur, had fixed the prices of different brand of cement March 26.
It had cautioned to penalize and prosecute any one selling above the given rate.
The advisory committee of Dimapur municipal council (DMC), which met April 13, had listed out checking price rise as its utmost priority.
