Following the total ban imposed along Alichen to Mangmetong road and Longkhum to Mangmetong road, deputy commissioner Mokokchung in an order issued on March 16 declared such blockade as “illegal and null and void”.

DC Mokokchung, Rajesh Soundararajan in the order stated that on March 6 last, it had received information that the Longkhum Senso Mungdang (LSM) had imposed a “total movement ban” on the abovementioned road. In this regard, EAC (Ongpangkong) had met the stakeholders from Longkhum village to revoke the ban on several occasions and to resolve the issue.  An emergency meeting was also convened at the DB’s court on March 10. However, DC said there were no positive efforts or response from the LSM and other stakeholders to resolve the issue.

DC pointed out that the said was a government PWD road and that individual/group had the right to block the road or suppress the fundamental right of freedom of movement of individuals as enshrined in the Constitution of India.

In this regard, DC said if anyone found violating the order will face penal action as per the law.
