Lightning shutters down in Mon town

Mon Chamber of Commerce & Industry (MCCI) on Monday imposed an indefinite “lighting shutdown of shops” in Mon town in protest against rampant taxation, donation drive, checking of goods etc.
In a letter addressed to deputy commissioner (DC) Mon, Mon Chamber of Commerce & Industry president Ngamom Konyak and general secretary Yanpong Nyemlin said if such activities continue to function/operate, affecting the business establishments, MCCI would continue the shutters down.
“We can no longer shoulder such illegal activities upon the business establishment,” MCCI stated.
Besides being severely affected by the Covid-19 pandemic lockdown, the trade body said they were unable to conduct business activities due to the “rampant taxation and checking by different individuals, NGOs, over ground and underground” groups against the business community.
Meanwhile, district administration sources confirmed that the DC had received the letter.
In this regard, a meeting has been convened at DC’s office on Tuesday with all stakeholders to deliberate on the issue.
