Rengma and Kyong organizations Thursday announced they would impose an indefinite road blockade along NH-61 under Tseminyu and Wokha sections from August 24 starting at 6 a.m.
This was resolved at an emergency meeting held August 19 after the state government rejected demands contained in a memorandum submitted by Rengma and Kyong Nagaland registered class-1 contractors for cancellation of NIT.
The meeting was attended by Rengma and Kyong contractors and representatives of Kyong Hoho (KH), Rengma Hoho (RH), Kyong Eloe Hoho (KEH), Rengma Mothers’ Association (RMA), Kyong Students’ Union (KSU), Rengma Students’ Union (RSU) and public leaders.
A joint press statement issued by leaders of the organizations stated that the meeting decided not to allow any contractors to execute works within Rengma and Kyong jurisdictions on NH-61 unless the demands were fulfilled. Signatories of the statement included Rengma NGRCL-CU president M. S. Khing, Kyong NGRCL-1CU president Thomas Ngullie, Rengma Hoho president Kegwanye Lorin, Lotha Hoho president Yantsathang Jami, RMA president Kelusha Kath, KEH president M. L. Ovung Lotha, RSU president Kenneth Kath, KSU president N. Yiben Humtsoe, and Rengma GBs association former president Kegwanye Kent.
It may be mentioned that Rengma and Lotha contractors have resorted to agitation following the state government’s failure to accept their memorandum with regard to cancellation of a government advertisement dated July 8, and to accommodate local contractors by breaking up the sanctioned job into piecemeal, as has been the practice. The contractors conducted the first phase of their agitation from August 17 -18.
