After a little over six months, trucks and buses started moving freely from Sunday along NH-39 and NH-53 without tension even though the ban on plying along NH-39 imposed by the Transporters’ and Drivers’ Council (TDC) was yet to be lifted.
Police said trucks and other vehicles have started moving without security escorts after the lifting of the economic blockade by the United Naga Council (UNC) temporarily effective from Sunday. More than 80 freight trucks left Mao Gate for Imphal today.
A number of empty trucks and inter-state buses also crossed Mao Gate to their respective destinations such as Dimapur, Guwahati and other places outside the state.
However, the Transporters and Drivers Council (TDC) was yet to lift the restrictions imposed on plying state vehicles along NH-39 demanding compensation to the trucks damaged in Nagaland during the NSF ban.
“We are not lifting restrictions on freight trucks, oil tankers, gas bullet tankers and others should immediately stop using the route in ferrying goods,” a TDC statement warned adding that they wanted peace and not violence.
The TDC cautioned that it might be compelled to resort to violent activities if the vehicles continued to travel on the route.
TDC said it would not hold responsibility for any untoward incident that might arise out of failure to adhere to its restrictions.
