Drawing attention to the deplorable Mon-Longwa road which covers 42 kms and maintained by Border Roads Organisation, the Longwa Students Union (LSU) has appealed the government and concerned authorities concerned to immediately intervene on this issue post pandemic “so that the untold hardships of the people of Longwa and other neighboring villages is lessened.”

A press release by LSU general secretary, T. Nahlak Wangnao stated that, Longwa village is one of the biggest villages in Mon district and home to more than 5000 people and lies at the international border of India and Myanmar.  While blacktopping was done in 2005-2007, the LSU stated that there has been no proper renovation or repairing and the annual renovations do not cover the worst affected parts. Lamenting over the deplorable drainage and potholes which worsens the road condition, the LSU expressed deep concern and “dismay upon the concerned authorities in particular.”
Pointing out that deplorable road condition has been adversely affecting the flow of trade, transportation fares and market rate in the area, the LSU stated that even the Nagaland State Transport bus service between Mon and Longwa was also suspended some few years back for the same reason.
