DIMAPUR, OCT 5 (NPN) | Publish Date: 10/5/2019 10:53:41 AM IST

In view of the setting up of the District Level Price Monitoring Committee (DLPMC) to evolve mechanism to monitor and control price of essential commodities in Dimapur and the request made by the administration and appeal of Hindu Seva Samiti and Bengali Samaj Dimapur on account of Durga puja, the Public Action Committee (PAC), Naga Council Dimapur (NCD) core committee has decided to postpone the proposed indefinite bandh that was scheduled to begin on October 7, 2019.

In a press release, PAC said the core committee meeting held at Naga Council Hall on Saturday has, however, decided to wait till October 19, 2019, when the sub-committee constituted by DC Dimapur would bring out report with price list of commodities from neighbouring towns, district and states for comparison and finalization.

Expressing its reservation on the committee members of DLPMC, the PAC said it would put forward appeal to DC for redressal.

Reiterating that it has decided to wait till October 19, 2019, the PAC said it has not called off the proposed indefinite bandh, but was only providing a space to the administration to rectify the anomalies within the given period. “PAC will certainly look for support to fight together with all likeminded organisations for the welfare of the society, districts and state in general,” it stated.

Meanwhile, PAC has extended gratitude to all tribal hohos, individual contributors and organisations for extending support to PAC in its effort to fight illegal collection of money and normalize prices of all commodities.

PAC has particularly acknowledged the Nagaland Voluntary Consumers Organisation (NVCO) , Nagaland Government Registered Class-1 Contractors Union(NGRC-1CU) and Kohima District Truck Owners and Drivers Union (KDTODU) who have vocally come out in support of PAC understanding the gravity of calling an “indefinite bandh”.
