Vehicular movement along the Imphal-Jiribam section of NH-37 came to a grinding halt on Friday, the first day of 48-hour highway bandh. 

All Jiribam Road Transport Drivers Union (AJRTDU) imposed the 48-hour bandh with commenced from Friday at 6am.  The union called the bandh to protest against demolition of the union’s sign board at Gularthol on June 10 last by miscreants alleging the place where the office building located is within Tamenglong district and not Jiribam district.

Members of the union had a scuffle with the miscreants who allegedly threatened to shift the office on the same day (June 10).

The union imposed the bandh after miscreants involved in the demolition and threats failed to come up even as the deadline set by the union to come clean or tender an apology expired on June 12.

Owing the bandh, no vehicle was seen plying on the highway for the day. Reports said that hundreds of Imphal-bound vehicles including loaded trucks and inter-state buses were stranded at various places in Jiribam and on Assam side beyond Jiribam.
